[News] K Desktop Environment (KDE) Gets Funding, Exchange Compatibility

Hash: SHA1

NLnet Foundation Sponsors Lokalize

,----[ Quote ]
| The Dutch NLnet Foundation, aiming to stimulate open network research and 
| development and more general to promote the exchange of electronic 
| information, has decided to financially support the Lokalize project of KDE.  


OpenChange, KDE bring Exchange compatibility to Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Recent developments in the OpenChange and KDE open source projects are set to 
| bridge a "missing link" in messaging and groupware compatibility from 
| Microsoft's Exchange to open source clients.  
| Many open source groupware suites lay claim to this holy grail of 
| interoperability, but the software to synchronise address book, task and 
| calendar information with Exchange is sold as a proprietary extension.

| A new "Crystal Desktop Search" Plasmoid, allowing searching through NEPOMUK 
| indexes (and MediaWiki-based websites). Support for "grep-like behaviour" in 
| the "FileWatcher" Plasma applet, and support for custom server addresses 
| (aka. backend locations) for the "Pastebin" applet. Further developments in 
| the "System Load Viewer" (which moves to kdereview for KDE 4.3) and "Video  
| Player" applets.    



KDE 4.2: I'm tired of Pundits, Here's MY Take

,----[ Quote ]
| For those who say that they cannot deal with a new desktop, get over
| yourselves. KDE 4 is not really that radically different in the big picture.
| I mean, you run programs on a desktop! Sure things are being done a little
| differently than KDE 3.5, but get a grip for a second, the KDE 4 series is
| definitely still KDE at its core. It is not rocket science to learn KDE 4.2
| if you really knew what you were doing in 3.5, and the payoff will be a very
| refined desktop that is both visually pleasing as well as very functional.


KDE 4.2 Is The Answer

,----[ Quote ]
| For the first time, the KDE 4 series achieves feature completion to make it a
| great rival to KDE 3 and a perfect choice for future KDE distributions. Sure,
| I found some issues with this release, but all the great features and
| improvements more than make up for it, and not everyone is as picky as I am.
| Overall, KDE 4.2 is used happily on all of my comptuers and I look forward to
| further developments from the KDE team.


a big day

| Lots of dancing and drinking afterwards at the after parties (plural :) and
| when I eventually got up mid-morning I had a couple hundred emails waiting
| for me, way too many of which required my attention. I ended up unexpectedly
| in a few online meetings which altered my expected schedule significantly. Oh
| well, tomorrow's another day ... on which I have two more presentations to
| give.
| In that same time, The Dot got a great new look and KDE 4.2 was released.
| Exciting times indeed!


New features in KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE team has released version 4.2 of KDE 4. The release of KDE 4.0 a year
| ago laid the foundations for reinventing the KDE desktop – as well as
| attracting plenty of criticism, with the initial release of KDE 4 containing
| numerous bugs and overall, looking far from being a mature product.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
