On sunday the second KOffice bug day took place. Just like the triage last year, the this krush day was a huge success.
The bugsquad did an amazing job and found many bugs. Unfortunately I was busy finishing an university project, so I couldn’t take part in most of the fun. We expected to find many new bugs, but the amout of the found bugs surprised me a bit. For many apps there were more bugs discovered than in several beta releases together. It shows that the beta releases don’t get much testing. Especially Karbon, KChart, KPlato and even Krita get less testing than they need.
We also found many usability problems. As a developer you know pretty good what the app does and how it does something, so you don’t directly face the existing usability problems. It’s interesting to see how other people are using the app and what confuses them.
In case you still don’t know how to krush Krita, Elián Hanisch (m4v) made this great description:
The image is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 and also available as Krita file (needs latest Krita trunk). The image is pretty cool as it’s the first real image, that I have seen, to make use of the new Krita shape layers.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the krush day. Your work helps to make KOffice 2 even better.
