[News] KDE 4.2 Advances: 'Built-in' Database, KWin Effects

Hash: SHA1

KDE 4.2 brings the MySQL server to the desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| If you’re using Fedora 10, and are a KDE desktop user, you’ll notice that 
| your latest KDE 4.2 update, requires having a local MySQL server installed. 
| This is due to Akonadi, part of the KDE PIM packages, that now rely on MySQL 
| as a default server, for storing PIM data. Just a few months ago, I mentioned 
| the news that Amarok 2 will also use MySQL as a default database.    


New KWin effect: Sheet

,----[ Quote ]
| Currently you don’t want to use the effect if fade effect is enabled as well. 
| The two effects have different durations, so the dialog is completly faded 
| while still being rolled up.  



KDE 4.1 - Wow!

,----[ Quote ]
| So I downloaded it to work alongside KDE 3.5 and wow, is it awesome! It's
| almost like an entirely different program, making my darling Ubuntu Gnome
| desktop look a little boring itself. I may even do a fresh install of Kubuntu
| in this partition with KDE 4, then upgrade to KDE 4.1. In any case, I'm sure
| I'll report back with more to say!


KDE 4.1 delivers a next-gen desktop Linux experience

,----[ Quote ]
| Although the weaknesses of the flawed 4.0 release provoked widespread
| criticism from users, version 4.1 is so polished that it feels like a
| completely different piece of software. This version truly delivers on KDE's
| promise of a next-generation Linux desktop environment, and it completes the
| foundation for a strong 4.x series.


My Perfect Desktop: Kubuntu KDE 4

,----[ Quote ]
| The Kubuntu KDE 4 desktop has become my perfect desktop. It has all the
| functionality I could ask for, and I have added applications to supplement
| that effect.


Shuttleworth has some nice words for KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| Is Mr Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth, slowly warming towards KDE? Or is the man
| merely trying to keep the KDE folk onside, after a whole host of "technical
| writers" have attacked the new release of that desktop environment?
| [...]
| Given the amount of flak that the recent KDE release - 4.0 - has taken from
| the pro-GNOME pundits at sites like linux.com, you would think that the worst
| possible thing any supporter of GNOME - as Shuttleworth is perceived to be -
| could do is to speak out in support of anything associated with KDE.
| But you would be wrong. Shuttleworth is now floating the idea that there can
| be a QT-based GNOME.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
