I’m pleased to announce that with the help of Dave Butcher KDocker has been updated to use Qt 5! See what I did there with the version number. This release doesn’t introduce any new features. It’s so KDocker can remain useful and not become one more piece of software that you can’t use on modern […]
There are two big changes on the KDocker front. First I’ve released version 4.9. It still used Qt 4 and has a few bug fixes. Contributions from Dave Butcher were the main reason for the release. Also, KDocker is no longer hosted on Launchpad. It has moved to GitHub at (https://github.com/user-none/KDocker). The plan is the […]
A bug was opened against KDocker the other day. Now bugs aren’t a bad thing and typically they are user error so they get closed out as invalid. Sometimes they’re real issues which get looked into and fixed. On very rare occasions they’re dictations/demands. I’ve edited the post to include the contents of the bug report here […]
It was announced today that the Wayland protocol is now done. Wayland being the up and coming replacement for Xorg this poses a challenge for KDocker. KDocker uses X11, Xpm, and Xmu specifically to manipulate and dock windows. While Wayland is supposed to provide an X compatibility layer as we all know about compatibility layers […]

Also, heavily contributing to projects such as calibre. As well as doing one off patches and filing bug reports to various […]
Version 4.6 is now available for direct download. This release adds a few new features which I hope will be very helpful. The biggest new feature is really an enhancement to an existing feature. Matching by name now supports using regular expressions (regex). The -e option was added which allows specifying the matching type. Normal […]
Let me start of by saying that KDocker is not dead and I’m not abandoning it. The past few releases have had minimal changes. This is mainly because I believe KDocker is pretty must feature complete at this point. It docks apps and does a pretty good job doing so. The past few releases have […]
Small maintenance release. No new features. Just a fix for building with GCC 4.7 and fix the icon for the .desktop file. Get it here.
I’ve updated the Ubuntu PPA for KDocker. It now includes the 4.6 release for Lucid, Maveric and Natty. Amd64 and i386 architectures have packages ready to go.
Version 4.6 is now available for direct download. This release focus on fixing two bugs when using KDocker with the KWin window manager. It fixes and issue with windows not restoring when the “iconify when minimized” option is set. There is also a small change in how windows are focused after being restored as KWin […]
