An Introduction to KDE Games

,----[ Quote ]
| For a long time KDE has come with an 
| assortment of games. Collectively, this suite 
| of games is simply called âKDE Gamesâ. With 
| the advent of KDE 4, all of the KDE games were 
| given face lifts and a standard set of 
| features that make moving from game to game a 
| seamless exercise.
| The games are two dimensional and do not run 
| inside of a separate layer like SDL. Instead 
| they run inside a normal KDE window, utilizing 
| the standard QT interface. Nevertheless, the 
| rendering of of the graphics is amazingly 
| impressive because of the use of SVG vector 
| graphics. With SVG, the animations are smooth 
| and the images are scalable. You can play in a 
| small window or maximize it without losing any 
| of its quality.


New kid on the block: Plasma Water Animation

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm glad to make available a fresh new Plasma 
| animation: WaterAnimation. This animations 
| uses the ripple effect to produce a liquefied 
| behavior on the target widget. An example of 
| the animation behavior can be seen below, 
| enjoy! :-)


KDE time travel

,----[ Quote ]
| In my âquestâ to update KDE-related Wikipedia 
| articles, I had to do more research than I 
| expected and I needed to fix things I didnât 
| expect. But that research was fun, too. It 
| brought me back in time when I was still a 
| teen who tried to get some ancient Linux 
| distribution working and fiddled around with 
| KDE 1.

,----[ Quote ]
| Grantlee version 0.1.0 has been released by 
| the Grantlee team. For those not in the know, 
| Django is a high-level Python Web framework. 
| It can be used to develop websites, and offers 
| numerous features to make such a task easier.


Gluon Decides on New Structure in Preparation for First Release

,----[ Quote ]
| The freedom of gamers as it is now is limited 
| by the game industry's old fashioned 
| insistence on limiting the distribution of 
| games. Gluon aims at breaking this by 
| providing both the makers of games and the 
| players of games with a new platform for 
| sharing the experience of playing games, and 
| for providing feedback to each other - both in 
| the form of comments and ratings, but also 
| through a donation based payment system. So: 
| There's a revolution coming where the freedom 
| of gaming is at the center.



4.5 updates so far

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm not going to make a detailed post, just a
| screen-shot based overview of the new features
| you can expect in KDE 4.5.


KDE 4.5 Release Schedule Ready

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week we finished the KDE 4.5 release
| schedule. The good news is that you can
| start organising your release party now,
| the expected date for KDE 4.5.0 is August
| 4th 2010.


Five Improvements for KDE 4.5 (Part 2)

,----[ Quote ]
| In my opinion, the KDE4 desktop is the most
| revolutionary piece of Linux software since
| the Linux kernel itself, and I appreciate how
| it strives to challenge old desktop paradigms
| and introduce new ones.


Five Improvements for KDE 4.5 (Part 1)

| 4.) Easier Theme Installation
| Another issue I had with KDE (even with the
| KDE3.x series) is that themes are so easy to
| install in GNOME, but a pain in KDE. While
| installing new themes is still easiest to do
| in GNOME (download, drag, and drop) KDE SC 4.4
| has made strides in this area, finally. It can
| only get better from here.
| [...]
| So, there you have it. Those are
| features/changes I wished for during previous
| KDE releases that have all materialized into
| reality. With such progress, itâs clear that
| KDE is moving at the speed of light, and I
| predict KDE SC 4.5 will be the height of the
| KDE4 series. What am I hoping for in that
| release? Stay tuned next week to find out, and
| be ready to share your ideas so we can help
| make KDE the best it can be.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
