[News] Killer KDE Application Gets Plasmafied

Hash: SHA1

KDE4 Version of Digikam Photo Management Available

,----[ Quote ]
| Photographers in the Free world rejoice! On behalf of the Digikam developer 
| team, Gilles Caullier has announced the first KDE 4 release of Digikam, the 
| photo management application.  
| Digikam is a full-fledged tool that covers the whole digital photography 
| workflow, from downloading the pictures off of your camera (and in the new 
| version even capturing photos from inside digikam) to sorting, editing, 
| rating and tagging (including geolocation and editing of raw photos in the 
| new version) and of course also publishing your photos.

Why I prefer KDE over GNOME

,----[ Quote ]
| Some will say, “Well, KDE also forced a dumbed down KDE 4.0 onto the masses”.  
| But, that is not really the case.  The KDE developers were very clear in 
| saying that KDE 4.0 was not intended for the public at large.  It was meant 
| for *developers*.  If there are any options still missing in KDE 4.2 it is 
| not due to a desire to artificially limit the number of options.  It is 
| simply a matter of not being able to incorporate them yet.  The KDE 
| developers attitude is clearly very different from the one I have experienced 
| in the GNOME world.  I feel like the KDE developers want to empower me while 
| the GNOME developers want to restrict me.

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.


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.
