comment QGIS 2.2: Rotated labels not possible any more?
By default, the 'new' labeling engine keeps text upright, i.e. legible. To turn this off, go under the Rendering section and set Show upside-down labels to something other than never.

comment Exporting PDF from QGIS with print composer without destroying fonts
Should be in nightlies in about a week or so, though there will be scaling issues until we work through adding more unit tests. It is going to be integrated with a better SVG export functionality.

It will be in 2.3 (development version) prior to 2.4 release. Yes, I manage the nightly builds for Mac.

comment Mac OS X 10.6.8 QGIS not using user-installed Python 2.7
This is correct. The only solution to using a different Python, e.g. like from Homebrew, is to compile QGIS from source.

comment Display errors with QGIS Python Console
Hmm. That's odd, because the 2.0.1 version has been heavily used under that platform/installer config. QGIS 2.2 is out, try updating to that using the OSGeo4W installer.

comment How to call a method by BOTH a button AND a key shortcut
Other than something installed on your system that is interrupting shortcuts, I can only surmise that your plugin code has some other issue not displayed here. Can you share the plugin code? Maybe as a link in a comment. Also, is the icon's resource path really ':/path/to/the/icon.png', or is that just sample code?

comment Display errors with QGIS Python Console
Please provide more information about your QGIS setup, e.g. platform, source/type of installation, etc. Also, in Python Console enter: import PyQt4.Qsci;PyQt4.Qsci.QSCINTILLA_VERSION_STR . What is the reported version?

Hmm. I don't have any issue here using this code. Shortcut just works for me. Try editing an existing plugin (one without a shortcut), and add a shortcut to it. Then see if it functions correctly. If not, try overriding the shortcut in Configure shortcuts and see if the new shortcut works. What version of QGIS are you using?
