| KDE 4.4 comes with Amarok 2.2.2 as the 
| music player. Amarok can make use of 
| KNotify for displaying Now Playing 
| information, instead of its OSD feature.

| The RunnerManager interface in libplasma 
| which powers KRunner (among other 
| interfaces) was designed to allow plugins 
| a-plenty so that one search term could be 
| matched in "real time" by several different 
| components, each one looking for answers in 
| different ways or places. This isn't a 
| particularly unique design by any means, 
| and the concept can be seen in many search 
| interfaces out there.

| KDE SC 4.4 comes with vastly improved and 
| expanded Javascript Plasmoid support, and 
| I'd like to personally introduce them to 
| you. I will therefore be hosting open 
| training sessions on both Friday and

| in #plasma-training.

Cedega Install: KDE4

,----[ Quote ]
| Been meaning to do this for a while. Here's 
| a walkthrough of install Cedega atop a KDE4 
| desktop. As a precursor note, Cedega does 
| not yet actually work on the hardware 
| platform I used to write this guide. 
| There's an issue with Cedega's hardware 
| identification failing to recognize a 
| mobile RadeonHD 2600 with Catalyst 10.1 
| atop a 2.6.32 kernel.

KDE SC 4.4: Fresh breeze for KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest 4.4 release of the KDE Software
| Compilation (KDE SC) offers far more than
| just stability and bug fixes: The
| developers have added a special new desktop
| for netbooks, as well as more program
| options. They have also made major
| structural changes.
| [...]
| Binary packages for most of the
| distributions are to become available in
| the next few days, which will give users â
| even those who still use KDE 3 â an
| opportunity to take a first look at KDE SC
| 4.4.

| desktop environment pushed out version 4.4

Software Compilation 4.4!

,----[ Quote ]
| There are plenty of goodies in this new
| release (see the feature guide for a more
| complete run down). However, one of the
| most exciting new features is the Plasma
| Netbook workspace. Almost makes me want to
| get a netbook, but I suspect Iâll give it a
| run out on my old but little laptop anyway.
