KDE Software Compilation 4.5 Beta2 Release Announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, KDE has released the second beta 
| version of what is to become KDE SC 4.5.0 
| in August 2010. KDE SC 4.5 Beta2 is 
| targeted at testers and those that would 
| like to have an early look at what's coming 
| to their desktops and netbooks this summer. 
| KDE is now firmly in beta mode, meaning 
| that the primary focus is on fixing bugs 
| and preparing the stable release of the 
| software compilation this summer. Over the 
| last two weeks, roughly since the first 
| beta, 1459 new bugs have been reported, and 
| 1643 bugs have been closed, so we're 
| witnessing a lot of stabilization activity 
| right now. More testing is in place, 
| however, while the restless developers 
| continue to create a rock-stable 4.5.0. 


Second Beta for KDE SC 4.5 Available for Testing


Review: Amarok 2.3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| I only used Amarok lightly on KDE 3, so I 
| am not equipped to answer claims that the 
| recent releases still lag behind the 1.x 
| releases (although I might some day 
| investigate by looking at Pana, a project 
| whose purpose is continue the development 
| of Amarok's first version.
| However, with five releases, Amarok's 
| second series is approaching maturity in 
| its own right. Although some of the newest 
| features are less than perfect I appreciate 
| the Amarok team's constant efforts to 
| improve the application, and to accommodate 
| a variety of user styles. Despite a few 
| imperfections, it remains my music player 
| of choice -- and the 2.3.1 release simply 
| reinforces my preference.
