[News] Impressive Screenshots of KDE4 Kwin, Kontact Testimonial

Hash: SHA1

Introducing KDE 4: Kwin

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 3.5.x had an option for enabling composite called kcompmgr (which was a 
| modified version of xcompmgr), it had basic functionality like transparency 
| and fading, but nothing else, and it wasn't exactly fast.  
| Then Compiz came, originally designed by Novell along with XGL, but, even if 
| it can be used with KDE, it obviously was designed with GNOME in mind. 
| The KDE developers wanted eye-candy composite for they KDE 4 series, so they 
| had 3 options, writing a whole new window manager, use compiz or improving 
| kwin, they took the last one.  


Kontact and Citadel - experiences

,----[ Quote ]
| While there are many FLOSS Groupware servers out there, hardly any one them 
| is reliable working with any FLOSS client. Recently my company had to bring 
| Citadel and Kontact together, and we used the opportunity to patch while we 
| go.   



KDE 4 rev 802150: Work in progress

| KWin with Wobbly Windows
| Kwin features a new visual effect known to most of you from Compiz: the
| Wobbly Windows. Only a few days ago the settings panel for this effect had
| tons of detailed options. Most of these options have been disabled now, the
| only thing that can be configured is the window deformation level while in
| motion. This seems more appropriate for a common user since the number of
| configurable settings was overwhelming before. One minor flaw that I noticed
| in KWin Wobble Windows is that the window shadow is not properly deformed (it
| does not adjust to the current shape of the window).

| This is another revision of the development version of KDE 4 environment.
| Lots of you have asked why it took me so long to publish this article. Well,
| I was just waiting for rev 790000, that’s all. I hope that your curiosity
| will be satisfied since there’s been a lot of changes to describe this time.
| I did my best.
