[News] KDE 4.2 Added to Linux Mint

Hash: SHA1

Finally, Linux Mint 6 with KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| One day after the announcement for Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox CE RC1, Clement 
| Lefebvre and the community behind the Linux Mint project announced today the 
| immediate availability of the first release candidate of Linux Mint 6 
| (Felicia) KDE Community Edition: "I think I can speak for the team when I say 
| we’re all really excited about this release. It’s new, it looks fantastic and 
| it’s our first ever KDE4 release. I would like to congratulate Boo for the 
| excellent work he’s done on this edition, and I’m proud to announce the 
| release of Linux Mint 6 KDE RC1."       



KDE 4.2 Lures Me Back to Kubuntu 8.10 . . .

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, I sounded pretty certain in my last post that I was done with KDE 4.1
| and Kubuntu 8.10. I was told by a commenter to that post that KDE 4.2 looked
| pretty promising. I spent this past weekend working with VirtualBox (which
| itself has matured into a great program - more later) and I got curious about
| what the Jaunty Jackalope Kubuntu had to offer.


My Impressions of KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Dual screen support in terms of my desktop setup seems to be about the same
| as it had been, but I think that is because I am using the proprietary ATI
| driver and not the open source one. It works well enough that I don’t have
| any issues. I really like the feature where if you have a maximized window on
| one screen you can just drag it over the other screen and it stays maximized.
| Maybe other versions of KDE had this… but either way it is real handy.
| I can hardly say enough good things about KDE 4.2 and I am really looking
| forward to the 4.3 release and some additional bug fixes.


KDE 4.2 Beta++

,----[ Quote ]
| The Beta1 of KDE 4.2 Desktop Environment has been released at 26.11.2008. So
| it’s been there for a while - let’s take a look at the revision 893046.


Loving KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that KDE 4.2 beta1 packages are finally done we can start using KDE 4.2!
| I think the changes are absolutely great. Nothing too radical, but the KDE
| team packed in a lot of features everywhere and it really adds up!


KDE 4.2: A few points

,----[ Quote ]
| After reading this announcement, I decided to upgrade to 4.2 beta 1. Though I
| had been using nightly, but somebody advised me to go for the beta.
| Naturally, beta has all goodies of nightly (neon), but polished.


KDE 4.2 beta 1 on Gentoo

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.2 is set for release on January 27th.  Eager to see what is new and
| improved, I installed beta 1 on my Gentoo box.  KDE 4.1.80 was tagged then
| released late last month after the feature freeze deadline. This is a
| snapshot of the current development tree that will eventually be released as
| KDE 4.2.


Ubuntu: Try KDE 4.2 Now!

,----[ Quote ]
| Dolphin, the file manager for KDE 4, has also seen a few little improvements
| too; most noticeably among them being the slider to smoothly increase or
| decrease the size of the icons in folders.
| While this all sounds fantastic, keep in mind that this new version is still
| very much a work-in-progress, and may be prone to random breakage; the Plasma
| workspace has still been crashing regularly for me, desktop effects are still
| a little buggy and sluggish, and a few other niggles which prevent me
| personally from choosing the new KDE series over the proven stability of the
| Gnome desktop. However, it’s great for a casual tinker and for those who like
| to live on the bleeding edge. Have fun!


KDE 4.2: Codenamed Caterpillar, Promising a Butterfly

,----[ Quote ]
| If the first beta of KDE 4.2 is any indication, then the final release of the
| popular GNU/Linux desktop should be the release in which KDE 4 comes into its
| own.
| Featuring numerous small enhancements to system settings and standard
| applications, as well as improved customization and features on the desktop
| and panel, 4.2 is a significant upgrade by any standards. Codenamed
| Caterpillar, the release offers hopeful hints of the butterfly that is
| scheduled to emerge in January.


Hands-on: KDE 4.2 beta 1 brings impressive improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| The first beta release of KDE 4.2, the next major version in the KDE 4
| series, was made available for download last week. Thousands of bugs have
| been fixed since the 4.1 release and many aspects of the environment are
| starting to feel very smooth and polished.


KDE 4.2 Beta 1 Desktop Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE development community has banded together and today released an early
| Christmas present to those using the K Desktop Environment on Linux and other
| operating systems. The first beta release of KDE 4.2 is now available. KDE
| 4.2 Beta 1 features a large number of improvements since the release of KDE
| 4.1 in July.


plasma systray, 4.2

| The white arrow on the edge is the expander: click on it and hidden icons
| show up. If you have no hidden system tray icons then the expander isn't
| shown.


KDE 4.2 is flat out going to rock

,----[ Quote ]
| That’s my prediction. Of course, the truth of the matter is that KDE 4.2
| (trunk) flat out rocks today. Seriously. I have never been more excited about
| the Linux desktop than I am right now. And this, 2+ months out from our
| actual KDE 4.2 release. I’ve been running OpenSUSE 11 for a couple of months
| now, and thanks to the awesome nightly/weekly KDE 4.2/trunk packages, I’m
| thoroughly enjoying pretty-darned-bleeding-edge 4.2/trunk packages, but with
| half the carbs, and I am loving what I’m seeing!


Dolphin Features for KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| The feature freeze for KDE 4.2 starts on the November the 17th. Time again
| for a summary of the features that made it into Dolphin since KDE 4.1...


Quick Look at KDE 4.2-SVN

,----[ Quote ]
| As the work on KDE 4.2 turns out to be on quite an advanced stage, I’ve
| decided to test the current development version.


Post 4.2 features - part 1 [Lancelot]

,----[ Quote ]
| New system buttons
| One of the first requested features, even before the Lancelot brainstorm
| thread on KDE forums was to change the system buttons from Lock Session, Log
| Out and Switch User to something else because some users don’t use some of
| the buttons. Radically changing the Lancelot behaviour this late in its age
| of existence is something that can not be considered. But the users should
| have some freedom.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
