Nautilus Begins To Change For GNOME 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| While GNOME 3.0 will not be released until 
| September 2010, many of the GNOME packages 
| are beginning to change in preparation for 
| this major overhaul of the GNOME desktop 
| even though the GNOME 2.30 release is still 
| ahead of us. While Zeitgeist, G-Streamer, 
| Clutter/Mutter, and GNOME Shell grab most of 
| the attention, the mature Nautilus file-
| browser is receiving some improvements too.

| One of the other hot topics for the 4.4 
| release of the KDE Workspaces has been the 
| use of JavaScript. With 4.4, you can define 
| the defaults for a Plasma Desktop layout 
| using JavaScript as well as change the 
| layout of a Plasma Desktop session at 
| runtime either interactively or via scripts 
| that get run at startup. (There is 
| documentation here, but we really should 
| have an article based on that in the 
| Techbase Sys Admin section; anyone up for 
| writing that?)



Watch out Microsoft: GNOME is poised to have a killer 2010

| With 3.0 on the horizon, it made me wonder --
| when was the last time you looked at GNOME?
| This open source desktop project actually
| celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2009
| (March, 2009). It had intended to release the
| much ballyhooed 3.0 version this year, but
| for various reasons, decided the latest
| release, available in October, would be
| better off named GNOME 2.30.


Community, Identity, Stability

| The second beta release of KDE Software
| Compilation 4.4 is coming up in about a week
| and a half. Itâs a long name for a release,
| but it carries with it additional meanings
| and allows emphasis in important areas which
| were not as strongly emphasized before.

Hands-on: Plasma, KWin improve in KDE SC 4.4 beta 1

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a number of more sophisticated
| KWin changes that are under active
| development but probably won't arrive in
| KDE SC 4.4. I'm particularly enthusiastic
| about a project that was undertaken by
| developer Nikhil Marathe which will
| ultimately add dynamic window tiling, so
| that KWin can be used like Ion and other
| keyboard-oriented tiling window managers.
| It's still at an early stage of
| development, but it shows considerable
| promise.
| Several new applications will debut in 4.4,
| including a new blogging tool called
| Blogilo. The tool, formerly known as Bilbo,
| is designed to give users a way to manage
| and post content to blogs that use the
| Metaweblog API, including Wordpress,
| MovableType, and Blogger. Its built-in
| content editor has optional WYSIWYG support
| and spellchecking. Due to its broad
| assortment of capabilities, Blogilo is
| arguably the most feature-rich native
| blogging tool on the Linux platform. It's a
| particularly useful tool for users who
| write multiple blogs and want to manage
| them through a single interface.


Is Tabbed Windows Going To Be The Next Big Thing?

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release of KDE SC 4.4 Beta 1,
| tabbed windows is now available through its
| windows manager KWin. This raises the
| question, is tabbed windows going to be the
| next big thing after tabbed browsing?
| Tabs as a means of cleaning up the UI is by
| no means a new concept. It dates back to
| 1997 when NetCaptor, the first browser
| supporting tabed browsing was released.
| However, the concept really took off when
| Mozilla Firefox introduced it.


KDE 4.3.4 now available for PCLinuxOS

| KDE has released a new version of the KDE
| Software Compilation (KDE SC). This monthâs
| edition of KDE SC is a bugfix and
| translation update to KDE SC 4.3. KDE SC
| 4.3.4 is a recommended upgrade for everyone
| running KDE 4.3.3 or earlier versions. As
| the release only contains bugfixes and
| translation updates, it will be a safe and
| pleasant update for everyone. Users around
| the world will appreciate that KDE SC 4.3.4
| is more completely translated. KDE 4 is
| already translated into more than 50
| languages, with more to come.
