Plasma 4.4: Update on where we are 

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in July, I blogged about our plans for Plasma in 4.4. 
| It's now September and the obvious question is: where are 
| we now?
| * Improve kiosk based lock down and deployment management: 
| there is the new plasma-desktop scripting support, but 
| action restrictions and more fine grained kiosk controls 
| are not yet done. Let's call this one 50% done.


Replacing KDE applications

,----[ Quote ]
| It feels like I just did this, even though Iâve been 
| running Linux as my primary OS since around 2002. When I 
| decided to stop using KDE recently, I was surprised to find 
| how many KDE applications on which I had become dependent, 
| and how little idea I had what to use as alternatives. Some 
| of them are little and therefore easily replaced, but 
| others that are more full-featured have been quite a 
| challenge. Hereâs a sampling of the ones Iâve been working 
| on lately.



Five Improvements For KDE 4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.3 is a great desktop, but there are improvements I think should be made
| to make it perfect. I have high hopes for KDE 4.4 and Iâm hoping some of
| these ideas will be considered for the next release, which will probably be
| due in January. Iâll definitely make sure to submit them to the KDE team for
| consideration, as you should too if you have any suggestions. With all that
| out of the way, letâs get started.


Plasma in KDE 4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| Each release of Plasma over the 18 months since its debut release has marked
| an impressive step forward in its evolution. We are planning on making 4.4,
| our second anniversary release coming in January 2010, more of the same in
| that regard.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
