| your computer easier. The primary design goal is to unify all the software

Slides and a cast

,----[ Quote ]
| Working on a set of presentations for a corporate project, Sebastian and I
| put together some content covering KDE and Plasma topics over the weekend. We
| thought it would be cool to share some of the results with you. Note that the
| slides are not designed for use at a conference (too much text and rather
| brief) but rather as an aide to introducing technical management type people
| to some of the key concepts.


KDE and internal storage

,----[ Quote ]
| Looking at KDE4 and related technologies, a few things about data storage hit
| me. Not that I know anything about it, but that does usually not prevent me
| from trying to be clever about it.
| Several parts needs to either index, cache or store data.


digiKam has a new tool to convert RAW camera files to DNG...

| Yes! a DNG converter for Linux...
| For a long time, many people asked me to implement a RAW camera image
| converter to Digital NeGative (DNG). Why should one support DNG under Linux?
| To improve interoperability with other photo-management programs such as
| Adobe tools, and to improve Digital Asset Management (DAM), as Gerhard Kulzer
| discusses in this nice tutorial and in particular in Part 2.



KDE 4 rev 802150: Work in progress

,----[ Quote ]
| KWin with Wobbly Windows
| Kwin features a new visual effect known to most of you from Compiz: the
| Wobbly Windows. Only a few days ago the settings panel for this effect had
| tons of detailed options. Most of these options have been disabled now, the
| only thing that can be configured is the window deformation level while in
| motion. This seems more appropriate for a common user since the number of
| configurable settings was overwhelming before. One minor flaw that I noticed
| in KWin Wobble Windows is that the window shadow is not properly deformed (it
| does not adjust to the current shape of the window).

| Lots of you have asked why it took me so long to publish this article. Well,
| I was just waiting for rev 790000, that’s all. I hope that your curiosity
| will be satisfied since there’s been a lot of changes to describe this time.
| I did my best.
