KDEPIM on Mobile â Whatâs going on?

,----[ Quote ]
| Anyone following the commits in the kde svn 
| repo will notice that there has been some 
| action on the mobile front in KDE PIM over 
| the last few months.
| [...]
| This project is the result of a 
| collaboration of KDAB, (my employer) with 
| Intevation, crypto specialists G10Code, and 
| interaction specialists Apliki known to KDE 
| for recent usability testing work on KMail 
| icons.


Kraft helps small businesses manage their work

,----[ Quote ]
| German developer Klaas Freitag says Kraft 
| is aimed at small companies, driven by a 
| boss and maybe a few people. He started 
| working on the software in 2005 after 
| having worked on similar applications for 
| many years. He says, âThe KDE platform 
| under C++ is the most effective platform to 
| build native GUI applications I have ever 
| worked with, and KDE has a strong, 
| friendly, open, and helpful community 
| thatâs fun to work in.â


Konsoleâs user interface changes

,----[ Quote ]
| Konsole is the app that probably almost 
| every KDE developer uses on a daily basis, 
| but there hasnât been much development on 
| the user interface front during the last 
| releases. The two brave souls Robert Knight 
| and Kurt Hindenburg are busy triaging and 
| fixing bugs. So to say Konsole is more 
| maintained than developed due to a simple 
| lack of manpower. Nonetheless some recent 
| changes may be worth blogging about.


Plasma Media Center Status report and introduction

,----[ Quote ]
| On startup, you are presented with a big 
| upper part which contains icons for the 
| available media modes, right now: local 
| music, local pictures and local video. The 
| bottom part is covered by a thin panel 
| which holds an exit button (do not ever 
| touch this or god will kill a ladybug and 
| you will cry in shame!) Also, this panel 
| shows you small icons for modes that are 
| currently active in the background. 
| Clicking on these will fast forward you to 
| that mode.
