[News] New KDE4 Plasma Themes and Menu Beauty

Hash: SHA1

New Plasma themes, new Qt, new Lancelot

| First I would like to point out that there are two new Plasma themes on 
| kde-look. Well, at least two *my* new themes. Or to be even more precise, 
| there is one new theme and one old that is new. Or new that is old. Or one 
| theme… OK, I’ll stop now.   
| One of the themes is Spoons, which is now named Spoons Original, and is 
| currently the oldest Plasma theme in existence (that’s why I couldn’t really 
| say that there is a new theme on kde-look).  



You’ve got branched!

| While this is great news for 4.2, it is even better for 4.3. This means that
| the SVN trunk is now exiting the /feature freeze/ state. This is a great
| thing for developers because the development becomes fun again (squashing
| bugs can not be labeled as fun), great for PlanetKDE readers since you’ll get
| real news from now on, and great for feature junkies for obvious reasons.


Lancelot, and the Knights of the Plasma Widget

| As someone who is a stickler for usability and efficiency, this sort of
| project is really brilliant. The fact that there is competition between
| different menu systems is part of what gives open-source operating systems an
| edge over the commercial ones.


Lancelot reaches Holy Grail of KDE menu

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4 is barely eight months old, and already it has three options for a main
| menu. Until now, users have either used the default Kickoff, which makes for
| awkward navigation of the menu tree, or reverted to the familiar but unwieldy
| classic menu. Now, with the first full release of Lancelot, users have
| another option that overcomes the shortcomings of both other alternatives and
| gives KDE 4 a thoroughly modern menu.
| [...]
| These points aside, Lancelot is in many ways what Kickoff should have been.
| It makes Kickoff structures work without inhibiting navigation or adding
| unnecessary complexity. I would not be greatly surprised if, a few releases
| down the road, Lancelot becomes the default menu in the KDE 4 series.


Lancelot revealed

| Well, not exactly, but now you can get the general idea, and you can see what
| it will look like
| This is an actual screenshot, not a mock up...
