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.

If you select multiple files for copying or moving in Konqueror, it creates one copy job for the whole operation, i.e. copying one file after the other until it is finised.

You can easily check for yourself, because now you only get one progress dialog.

The feature discussed in this article is about allowing different forms of job visualizations, not about changing the way jobs work.

Yes, I understood that much. ;) I also thought that it is already one job, just needed someone to confirm it.
