    (*) - Some parts of this item are already done

In progress:
-> Fix threaded generation. (seems more stable since 2005-Jan-03). Waiting4backtraces.
11 12

Urgent fixes and items to get ready before 3.4 (special high-priority list):
13 14 15
-> FIX 1/2: sync Memory Management (in Document) with the Generator (exp. undoing requests) (may Segfault!)
-> FIX 2/2: check for removing 'canUnloadPixmap' from observers in place of requesting
   a list of visible pixmaps

-> FIX: priorities for requests (pageview regular over thumbnails regular over pv preloading ...)
17 18
-> FIX: linearize memory pages map iterators in respect to time = FIX:iterate
   from older pages to newest ones when freeing memory (not randomly)
-> ADD: preloading (very easy, but change request a little)

-> FIX: check for removing 'canUnloadPixmap' from observers in place of a requested
   'visiblity list'
22 23
-> FIX: viewport changes the right way when clicking links and TOC items (also
   suggested by Mikolaj Machowski). Create a great viewport definition and merge

   it inside the synopsis too. [60% done]
-> link thumbnails view with document [first, the 'Viewport' must be defined]

More items (first items will enter 'In progress list' first):
-> move toolbar view actions in the PageView instead of the part. maybe.. or not...
-> usability: layout 2PPV [1 2,3 4,5 6] -> [1,2 3,4 5]. add option for 'ebook' style alignment. (by Mikolaj)
-> usability: trigger redraw on 'filter text' on current page (by Mikolaj)
-> watch out for FIXMEs in code
-> fix: requestPixmaps not triggered when exiting fullscreen mode (to verify..I can't reproduce-enrico)
33 34
-> fix: On continous view mode, if you click to a link that moves you to another
   page, then scroll up and click again on the same link it does not work. (by Albert)
35 36
-> display current page / total pages (with analog indicator too (progressbar/...))
   maybe this can be done on a small widget at the top of the toolbox, displaying
37 38 39
   'document' informations (pages, current pg, some metadata, etc..).
   Tested a 16px ktoolbar in the left-bottom corner.. looks goos and can be used to
   insert some actions that aren't so useful in the main (and bigger) toolbar
40 41
-> abstract TextPage generation (the last xpdf dependant class!). then go dancing in the
42 43
-> better boomark rendering (tested a 'clip overlay' but looks bad actually)
   maybe gray out other pages?
-> Dom framework to cache document metadata. It should archive those types of data:

   (NOTE: already Dom'ed object is marked with 'X')
   - <X> Synopsis will go there after 1st generation (so we can edit it too)
Enrico Ros's avatar
Enrico Ros committed
   - <X> Document info (after the 1st gen)
48 49
   - <X> Bookmarked pages
   - <X - only for pagenumber> General info (like viewport state)
50 51
   - Edited pages (rotated/with_data for example)
   - Overlay editing (hilighting/notations/etc..)
   - Presentation related overrides (FS mode, individual / global transitions)
53 54 55 56
   - ..more stuff.. but this isn't a problem, since a QDom is flexible by design
   The Object will reside into the Document and must not be accessible by Oservers in
   a direct way. Dom format, relations to other classes and accessing must be specified
   in a separated diagram or text file.

-> automatic online dictionaries / translators (BR80338)

-> goto 'logical' page (usually differs from pdf's page) (req. by Luca Burrelli)
-> use wallet for storing passwords of encrypted files
-> use shortcuts for next and prev page even in presenatation mode (by Tobias Koenig)

 Export: export to other formats keeping formatting (a dream.. except for PNG :-)
 PDF: <theICEBear> pdf forms support.... :D if at all possible
