Hash: SHA1

KDE 4.2 Beta 1 Desktop Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE development community has banded together and today released an early 
| Christmas present to those using the K Desktop Environment on Linux and other 
| operating systems. The first beta release of KDE 4.2 is now available. KDE 
| 4.2 Beta 1 features a large number of improvements since the release of KDE 
| 4.1 in July.    


KDE 4.2 Beta 1 Release Announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability 
| of "Caterpillar", (a.k.a KDE 4.2 Beta 1), the first testing release of the 
| new KDE 4.2 desktop. Caterpillar is aimed at testers and reviewers. It should 
| provide a solid ground to report bugs that need to be tackled before KDE 
| 4.2.0 is released. Reviewers can use this beta to get a first look at the 
| upcoming KDE 4.2 desktop which provides significant improvements all over the 
| desktop and applications.      


free software supply chains

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past few months I've been quietly tracking our upstream and 
| downstream interactions. The motivation for this has been my experience with 
| the KDE 4 series, in which we have both been on more people's radar (when was 
| the last time NVidia mentioned KDE 3 in a driver release?) and seen more 
| trainwrecks both up- and down-stream from us.     
| [...]
| I'm devoting brain time to this because it is going to be increasingly 
| critical to get our act together if we want to take on the next level of 
| competition we face in the market without gutting our values and our 
| resources. We have to communicate and coordinate much, much better between 
| the different points in our software supply chain and get our roles correctly 
| aligned with each other. Right now it's very ad-hoc and the network of people 
| has grown beyond that which is sustainable based on a who-knows-who game 
| masquerading as personal relationships.

| The white arrow on the edge is the expander: click on it and hidden icons
| show up. If you have no hidden system tray icons then the expander isn't
| shown.


KDE 4.2 is flat out going to rock

,----[ Quote ]
| That’s my prediction. Of course, the truth of the matter is that KDE 4.2
| (trunk) flat out rocks today. Seriously. I have never been more excited about
| the Linux desktop than I am right now. And this, 2+ months out from our
| actual KDE 4.2 release. I’ve been running OpenSUSE 11 for a couple of months
| now, and thanks to the awesome nightly/weekly KDE 4.2/trunk packages, I’m
| thoroughly enjoying pretty-darned-bleeding-edge 4.2/trunk packages, but with
| half the carbs, and I am loving what I’m seeing!


Dolphin Features for KDE 4.2

| The feature freeze for KDE 4.2 starts on the November the 17th. Time again
| for a summary of the features that made it into Dolphin since KDE 4.1...


Quick Look at KDE 4.2-SVN

,----[ Quote ]
| As the work on KDE 4.2 turns out to be on quite an advanced stage, I’ve
| decided to test the current development version.
