Videos: Dolphin, Gwenview & More in KDE 4.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Kde 4.1 release is getting closer and more video reviews are popping up on
| the net. If you are not, yet, aware of KDE 4.1 release schedule, the final
| version is expected to hit by the end of this month, i.e. July. KDE 4.1 is
| the first feature release for KDE 4.



KDE 4.1: What to Expect

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.1 is going to be a very exciting release. I personally opted not to use
| KDE 4 when it was first released, since it was way too buggy and was missing
| far too many features. This could change in a few days.


My Perfect Desktop: Kubuntu KDE 4

,----[ Quote ]
| The Kubuntu KDE 4 desktop has become my perfect desktop. It has all the
| functionality I could ask for, and I have added applications to supplement
| that effect.


Shuttleworth has some nice words for KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| Is Mr Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth, slowly warming towards KDE? Or is the man
| merely trying to keep the KDE folk onside, after a whole host of "technical
| writers" have attacked the new release of that desktop environment?
| [...]
| Given the amount of flak that the recent KDE release - 4.0 - has taken from
| the pro-GNOME pundits at sites like linux.com, you would think that the worst
| possible thing any supporter of GNOME - as Shuttleworth is perceived to be -
| could do is to speak out in support of anything associated with KDE.
| But you would be wrong. Shuttleworth is now floating the idea that there can
| be a QT-based GNOME.


Improvements in KDE’s Folderview

,----[ Quote ]
| Folderview is an awesome plasmoid which makes it possible to show the content
| of a folder on a screen. It also is the first step to say good bye to the
| traditional way of storing links and folder on the desktop itself. The idea
| is that files inside the folder “Desktop” are not shown right on the desktop
| but that in general files from any folder or place can be shown
| in “containers” on the desktop.


KDE 4 Progress: New plasmoids, Akonadi, KRunner and more

,----[ Quote
| In spite of fragmentary information about changes, that I’ve published since
| my last insight (like the Amarok 2 visual changelog), I’ve decided after all
| to gather them all in
| one place. Hence, I invite you to the next insight of KDE 4. The revision of
| the day is 811150.


Screencast: Showing Off KDE 4.1

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal'
| people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release,
| they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace".
| Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually
| seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to
| see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez
| Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're
| working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new
| stuff coming in KDE 4.1.
