As we all know inner beauty is the most important kind of beauty. Especially if you're ugly. Not ugly, don't sue me, I meant to say "easy on the eyes challenged". That's one of the reasons I like working on frameworks and libraries. It's the appeal of improving the inner beauty of certain things. I gave up on trying to improve the inner beauty of myself (when I was about 1) so this is the most I can do.
You can do it too. It's real easy. I took this week off because I'm going to Germany for SVG Open where I'll talk about SVG in KDE and today fixed a few irritating bugs in Sonnet.
One of the things that bugged me for a while was the fact that we kept marking misspelled text as red instead of using the God given red squiggly underline. Well, I say no more!
Our spelling dialog lists available dictionaries now and one can change them on the fly. That's good. Raspberries good. And raspberries are pretty darn good. Even sheep like raspberries.

I'm not quite certain myself but given the way this blog is heading it's surely something disturbing... Anywho. that's also fixed. Now we list proper and readable names. As in:
Working on Sonnet is a lot of fun. A small change in a pretty small library affects the entire KDE which is rather rewarding. So if you wanted to get into KDE development in an easy and fun way go to https://bugs.kde.org search for "kspell" or "sonnet" pick an entry and simply fix it!
