[News] Lots of KDE4 Progress Details, Amarok 2.1 is Near

Hash: SHA1

Fun with Krita: Spray

,----[ Quote ]
| I coded some funny stuff for a paintop called spray. The idea behind it was 
| that I wanted to add a “killer” feature to krita — spray that behaves like MS 
| Paint spray. But then I added support for anti-aliased pixels, then I added 
| support for shapes and it started to be fun, so I added more features.    


Kalzium - Video play feature

,----[ Quote ]
| This is a cool feature that I have added to Kalzium. It will be really 
| attractive in schools. I call it the play feature. You can basically play the 
| periodic table like a video where you can see the temperature increase from 0 
| K to 6000 K gradually and see all the elements melt and eventually boil.   


WebKit + D-Bus -> Instant Chrome-like browser [continued]

,----[ Quote ]
| The next step will be to implement more advanced, but still standard browsing 
| features. The smart address bar will be one of the first. It could probably 
| end up in Konqueror and Rekonq eventually.  


Two KDE SVN Branches and Git


Amarok 2.1: Mini Update

,----[ Quote ]
| I don’t like to tease too much — so to save you asking, Amarok 2.1 beta 1 
| should be available for widespread testing within a fortnight. Lap it up when 
| it arrives!  


Mini overview: Rekonq

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.x default web browser is Konqueror, I'm not sure, but I think it used 
| to be the only web browser for KDE (if there were others, I apologize with 
| you for the omission), until now. Rekonq is based on Arora (which is a pure 
| Qt application), Arora itself is quite good and fast, Rekonq is as good, as 
| fast but more integrated.    



The LHC is using KDE

Deploying KDE to 52 million young people

,----[ Quote ]
| By the end of this year 29,000 labs serving some 32,000,000 students will be
| fully deployed and in active use.
| By the end of next year (2009) those numbers will have swelled to 53,000 labs
| serving some 52,000,000 students.
