Cold War at the Eighth KDE PIM Gathering 

,----[ Quote ]
| The eighth annual KDE PIM developer meeting in 
| OsnabrÃck, Germany started out with an 
| extended snowball fight among the Scottish, 
| German and Dutch contingencies. That actual 
| work was being done was evidenced by 
| enhancements to Akonadi, KDE 4.4 and 4.5, and 
| planned further development of the Kontact 
| groupware client.
| The eighth annual meeting of the KDE groupware 
| faction was all in the spirit of mobile 
| devices. KDE Kontact is to be ported as fast 
| as possible on mobile platforms such as Maemo 
| 5 and Windows Mobile, if things go according 
| to the plans of the Kolab Consortium under the 
| auspices of Intevation and KDAB. Kolab has 
| recently been releasing repeated new versions 
| of the Windows port of KDE Kontact, the latest 
| with a one-click installer. 


SC09 Videos: AMD, Penguin, and the HPC French Fryer

,----[ Quote ]
| In 2009, we heard a lot about Nehalem and 
| Telsa. AMD and AMD/ATI were not taking a nap. 
| Their efforts are paying off and as the 
| following video will illustrate, they have 
| some great technology to offer the HPC crowd. 
| Indeed, AMD has been a big supporter of OpenCL 
| and has now released the ATI Stream Software 
| Development Kit with OpenCL support. The 
| promise of OpenCL is portability across 
| processors and GP-GPUâs (not cluster nodes, 
| however). The SDK from AMD/ATI has beta 
| support for both x86 processors and ATI video 
| cards. As you can see in the second half of 
| the video, OpenGL has arrived.



DE PIM Annual Meeting Pushes Advanced Design, Enterprise Stability

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE PIM is the Linux client for the Kolab groupware solution, and
| as such has many enterprise users who are supported by the
| companies making up the Kolab Konsortium. Due to their stability
| requirements, most commercial Kolab users are still using the
| KDE 3.3 codebase. A new enterprise branch of the KDE 3.5 PIM
| module is being created which will be used as an ultra-stable
| base for Kolab users, and so that Kolab-derived improvements
| can return to the KDE 3.5 branch.


KDE 4: the ultimate business desktop?

,----[ Quote ]
| Since beginning as a one-person project over ten years ago, the
| fourth generation of the K Desktop Environment (KDE) is poised to
| be the most business-friendly open source desktop to date with a
| host of new features ideal for enterprises.
| [...]
| Rodda is also bullish about KDE 4's ability to attract more commercial ISVs
| to port applications to the environment, primarily because of the
| multi-platform capability that comes with using Qt 4.


The Road to KDE 4: SVG Rendering in Applications

,----[ Quote ]
| Since KDE 4 development is in full swing with plans for a KDE 4.0
| release sometime later this year, I thought I'd put together a
| weekly piece entitled The Road to KDE 4. The idea is to have a
| short overview of one or two of the features that show progress
| in KDE 4. For my first issue, the goal is to show off some of
| the great SVG work that has taken place so far.


Sirius Teams Up with KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| Mark Taylor, CEO, Sirius Corporation said: "KDE is a high-quality
| desktop that has always had a strong following in the Open Source
| community. By becoming a sponsor of the project, we now want to raise
| its profile in the Enterprise."
