KDE Utils Lineup

| One of the release process improvements that happened with KDE 4 is the move
| to have module maintainers. This has ment some of the lesser loved modules
| now have a greater sense of community which helps a lot for those apps which
| are otherwise developed all alone. Here is the kdeutils members who were at
| Akademy.


They all got those Maemo tablets to put Qt and Mozilla stuff on them. :-)

KDE Commit Digest - Issue 93 - 13th January 2008

| Why add compositing support to KWin when Compiz is better?
| There can be different ideas about what better means, but regardless of that,
| the main aim of KWin is not to replace Compiz. Many users have asked for
| compositing support in KDE, and, as explained in "Why not Compiz?", the best
| way to achieve that is considered to be adding compositing support to KWin.
| KWin aims to provide compositing support, focusing on providing useful
| compositing features and basic visual effects, while keeping its other
| strengths. * * *
