Kdenlive Meets Studio Dave

,----[ Quote ]
| There's a lot to like about Kdenlive, and I 
| like it a lot. Its feature set is full enough 
| to satisfy basic desktop video production 
| needs, and its workflow is uncomplicated and 
| easy to learn. However, it must be considered 
| that I've reviewed a personal build from SVN 
| sources. I look forward to what my readers 
| have to report regarding Kdenlive's utility 
| and stability on their systems.


Concert Preview: Amarok 2.2.1 Going on Stage

,----[ Quote ]
| Just weeks after release of Amarok 2.2 (code-
| named Sunjammer), developers are already 
| blogging about the new features in version 
| 2.2.1. New features only? Hardly just that. 
| With Amarok 2.2 the team behind the KDE 
| audioplayer wants to match the quality and 
| stability of the renowned KDE 3 version 1.4. 
| Therefore, Sunjammer will get numerous minor 
| versions intent on enhancing Amarok and not 
| necessarily rushing head-on to the next 
| release.


Windows KDE4: Dolphin (File Manager) 

,----[ Quote ]
| Dolphin the KDE4's default file manager. You 
| can think of it as an equivalent to Windows 
| Explorer on a KDE based Linux. Much like 
| Explorer it allows you to browse the contents 
| of your computer, and manage files and folders.


KDE example code

,----[ Quote ]
| When someone wants to learn the techniques and 
| tricks of development with KDE libraries, they 
| can head on over to Techbase. While we have a 
| great amount of information there already with 
| dozens and dozens of tutorials, we're still 
| missing a lot of topics there. We really need 
| to address that over time, but that's a 
| different issue from the one this blog entry 
| is about: example code.



Windows 7, round 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Micro$oft has hundreds of developers working
| full-time on the user interface, while KDE apps
| are usually developed by only one or two people
| at a time, most of them working in their free
| time as a hobby. Micro$oft has dozens of the
| best-paid designers in the world, KDE has a
| handful of mostly freelance artists. Taking all
| this into account, Windows 7 is a shame for the
| Microsoft developers, because itâs in my
| opinion easily surpassed by KDE in terms of
| polish and design.


Amarok 2.2.1 - We're getting there!

,----[ Quote ]
| Here's a little teaser article, showing off
| some of the work we're doing for the upcoming
| Amarok 2.2.1. As some of you may know (or maybe
| not), we have decided to turn the 2.2
| "Sunjammer" series into a longer lasting
| series, similar to the 1.4.x "Fast Forward"
| cycle. This means, we're not branching to 2.3
| immediately, but instead we will make new
| releases about every six weeks, each including
| a number of new features and bug fixes.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
