Description:

This patch improves the way in which Konqueror load preview icons.
If the window is scrolled then the files that are in-view will have there icons generated next.
If the mouse moves over an icon then that icon will be generated next.

Konqueror can also be configured so that only those icons in view will be loaded by setting a new option 'Only load previews for items in view' under Konqueror's previews and Meta-data setting this option reduces memory and system overhead.


The screen shot shows the effect of scrolling to the end of a folder waiting for the icons to be rendered and then scrolling up a bit.
As you can see the top icons that were previously in view have been loaded before the icons before them listwise.


Patches are against kdelibs-3.4.1 and kdebase-3.4.1.

Ok. I'll sort out some diffs today.


As you say things like this tend to be good or bad so let me know and I'll hard code the functionality, until then I'll leave it optional and you can try both versions.

If you don't want the option to be available in the GUI don't patch kde-base/kcontrol.
