KDE SC 4.5.0 â Beta 2 â Another Quick Look

,----[ Quote ]
| Obviously, the move from beta 1 to beta 2 
| wonât bring any new features, however, as I 
| continue to use the KDE SC 4.5 betas, Iâm 
| continuing to discover the small improvements 
| that arenât obvious at first blush. Whilst 
| there arenât a huge number of new features in 
| this release, 4.5 is bringing a level of 
| polish that will serve as a solid foundation 
| for the next steps in the evolution of the KDE 
| desktop.


Next Gedit release will have a plugin for Collaborative Editing

| We have already talked about a web-based 
| collaborative editing tool today, Etherpad. So, 
| after that I started looking for some native 
| linux applications which do the same thing and 
| came across Gobby and a new collaboration plugin 
| for Gedit. We can talk about Gobby sometime 
| later, I am more interested to tell you about 
| this new plugin in Gedit .



Plugins Bring Vanilla Gedit a Spicy Kick

,----[ Quote ]
| The two computers I use most run Linux -- the laptop runs Ubuntu, while the
| desktop is a "distribution nomad" that changes frequently. One great thing
| about Linux is that the platform has no shortage of capable text editors.
| Some lend themselves more to writing code and heavy-duty programming than
| others (such as Vim and Emacs) while others straddle the plain text
| document/programming editor line.
| Lately, primarily because I've been slow to install my usual cross-over text
| editor of choice, Geany, I took a closer look at the plugins available for
| GNOME's "came with the desktop" editor, Gedit. The default plugins (and those
| found in the "extra" packages) make the plain vanilla editor far more
| appealing and useful for hardcore writers and casual programmers alike.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
