KDE Have you ever had your taskbar filled with 10 applications all doing something that involved waiting for a task to finish? Document Printing Progress, a K3b CD burning dialogue, Audio Encoding via KAudioCreator, File Transfers in Konqueror, Kopete, KTorrent, checking email in KMail... The new Jobs support in KDE 4 will unify the display of progress for these tasks, making it easy to see and manage what is happening on your system. Read on for details.

File copying?

Looks nice. However, how will it work with regard to file copying? They say it depends on DBUS; I just don't know how "deep" it is. If I select 100 files in Krusader / Konqueror, and copy it, will it spawn 100 processes? Or will it spawn just one?

In the former case, it will be close to useless. If they can manage this, however, it will rock!
