KDE 4.5 beta brings window tiling, new notifications
,----[ Quote ]
| One of the additions that I'm particularly
| enthusiastic about is support for tiled window
| management in KDE's KWin window manager. This
| feature allows users to snap windows together
| in non-overlapping arrangements and resize them
| together, much like the behavior of Ion and
| other tiled desktop environments. The feature
| was implemented as a Summer of Code project
| last year and was finally merged last month.
| I've long been a fan of tiled window
| management, so I've been looking forward to
| seeing this feature land ever since work on it
| was started.
| KDE 4.5 is getting a new panel notification
| area that is designed to be more consistent and
| functional. This feature is based on a D-Bus
| protocol that the KDE development community has
| submitted to the FreeDesktop.org organization
| with the aim of making it a cross-desktop
| standard. Although the upstream GNOME community
| has rejected the protocol, it has been adopted
| by Canonical and is used to power the new
| application indicator feature that is included
| in Ubuntu 10.04.
Sneak preview for coming KDE SC 4.5
,----[ Quote ]
| KDE SC 4.5 is in feature freeze right now.
| Therefore, I decide to share some of early
| screenshots with you. In General there are
| no major changes. It is all about
| polishing and fixing bugs. There is a lot
| of under-hood changes in libs which as
| enduser we cannot see. KDE SC will be
| release in August 2010. Now I will let you
| enjoy the screenshots.
