Akonadi Meeting and the KDE SC 4.5 release

,----[ Quote ]
| We are at the Akonadi meeting at the KDAB 
| offices in Berlin right now, which was 
| quite nice so far. We had the first round 
| of API review of new methods in KDEPIMLIBS 
| for 4.5, and already cleaned up quite a 
| bit. Having multiple eyes look at the API 
| is a nice way to improve the overall 
| quality of the API. We met with Andrey 
| Moiseenko and Alvaro Manera of Nokia, who 
| work on calendaring for the next Meego 
| phone from Nokia. They use our KCal 
| library, which they have forked/extended 
| for some special requirements they have. 
| Weâre now making plans with them to 
| integrate their changes back to our 
| version of KCal, so that both sides will 
| profit from changes and have a single 
| point of maintenance.


Whats up in KDE Remote Desktop Client?

| KDE SC 4.5 is coming up around the bend 
| and I'm posting about some of the new 
| exciting (to somebody I hope) features for 
| KRDC. For KRDC 4.4 we introduced a new gui 
| layout. I have been away from the keyboard 
| for awhile and finally have been able to 
| hammer out some bugfixes (1,2,3,4) for 
| those new features as well as some older 
| bugs to both 4.5 and 4.4.3 (for the most 
| part).
| Well what are these new features I'm 
| talking about? Well for starters I've 
| taken that drab list of connections in the 
| center of KRDC and made it much more 
| useful by adding statistics and other 
| information. You can sort your list by 
| these different pieces of information and 
| it will save your sort column/order for 
| the next time you open it so you can keep 
| it sorted the way you like.


KDE and the Masters of the Universe

| As some of you may know, I stared a new 
| podcast called KDE and the Masters of the 
| Universe (KDEMU for short). It is an *all* 
| KDE podcast that will cover a wide range 
| of KDE topics, releases, interviews with 
| developers, etc. Our premier episode with 
| Aaron Seigo and has just been released 
| Today!

| From KDE SC 4.5, youâll be able to fire up 
| KRunner or Lancelot, search for some 
| plasma widget and drag it to the desktop.
