KDE SC 4.4 branched, trunk reopens

,----[ Quote ]
| So tonight, release-team-hero Dirk has 
| branched off KDE SC 4.4 from trunk. Let 
| quickly explain what this means. Trunk/ is 
| a directory in KDEâs SVN repository, the 
| central place holding where all the code 
| from different contributors spread across 
| our planet comes together. In a big team 
| like KDE, we need some coordination to be 
| actually able to release our software 
| packages once in a while. Since the release 
| of KDE 4.0.0, a typical KDE release cycle 
| takes 6 months. Roughly 4 months of 
| development, followed by about 2 months of 
| stabilization and testing towards a 
| release. In the stabilization period, which 
| starts with the feature and string freeze, 
| only bugfixes and code improvements are 
| allowed. This is also the period where we 
| release regular test releases, in our case 
| a beta1, right after the feature freeze, 
| and a second beta (happened shortly before 
| christmas). The next test release is coming 
| soon, which is -rc1.


Making Firefox 3.x Look at Home in KDE4 (Part II)

,----[ Quote ]
| Back a few mere months ago, we wrote about 
| how to make Firefox 3.x look at home in KDE 
| Software Compilation 4.X. To date, this has 
| been the most-viewed article on The Blue 
| Mint. The reason is clear: People like 
| Firefox. Be it the extensions, familiarity, 
| general responsiveness (that gets better 
| with each release), or the cross-platform 
| compatibility, Firefox is here to stay. And 
| it remains the flagship web browser of 
| choice within the GNU/Linux playing field.
| [...]
| To install, simply download the theme, open 
| Dolphin (or Konqueror) and drag the 
| downloaded file into the Firefox Add-ons 
| window. Take a look at the screen shots to 
| see what you think.


On KDE 4.3.3

,----[ Quote ]
| All kinds of apps that I have some idea 
| about, but only from "the other side of the 
| fence," things I've only read about in the 
| gtk+ world. On the other hand . . . as long 
| as my existing gtk+ apps are integrated 
| visually into KDE (thanks to QtCurve) and 
| "just work," maybe I don't need to 
| duplicate my entire Xfce environment?
