| So, I needed an application that could 
| load a couple of pictures, showing two 
| pictures side-by-side for visual 
| comparison and at the same time presenting 
| the more important meta-data attributes 
| such as focal length, exposure time, ISO 
| and aperture.

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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
