| The KDE Project developers have released a 
| first beta for version 4.5 of the KDE 
| Software Compilation (KDE SC), a 
| development preview of the next major 
| release for the popular Linux and Unix 
| desktop. According to the developers, the 
| beta is aimed at "testers and those that 
| would like to have an early look at what's 
| coming to their desktops and netbooks this 
| summer". The final version of KDE 4.5 is 
| scheduled to be released in August, 2010.

| Good news for fans of KDE, the first beta 
| of KDE SC 4.5 is now available for 
| download. KDE has a history of introducing 
| some of the most innovative features in 
| each release. In KDE 4.4 we got tabbing 
| support at the window manager level, making 
| it possible for people to combine any two 
| arbitrary windows from different 
| applications, into one tabbed window.

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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
