  • KDE 4 Release Party in Hamburg

    By on Januar 14, 2008

    Is the Swedish tradition of throwing „used“ Christmas trees out of the window on a certain day a real one? That’s what a commercial of the furniture store IKEA wants us to believe at least. I don’t know which day would have been the right one but it was...

  • Plasmoids everywhere

    By on November 3, 2007

    KDE 4 is all about clocks. As I did not want to miss them while browsing the Net I sat down and extended Frerich’s Plasmoid Viewer code (a Workspace utility) to not only be a standalone program but also come along as a KPart. It can be embedded into...

  • The KHTML Future FAQ

    By on Oktober 23, 2007

    As people on #khtml and elsewhere keep asking the same type of questions I will summarize some of the answers that I can give and which – to my best knowledge – should match the view of other maintainers. This is to inform contributors, bug reporters, other helpers and...

  • New hardware => new KNewsTicker!

    By on Oktober 21, 2007

    My kind employer decided to grant me a brand new ThinkPad R61 – yay! Not only does this new machine allow my to play my beloved World of Warcraft in all its graphical glory, it also made me spend most of this weekend on hacking KDE4. I decided to...

  • Finalized return from aKademy

    By on Juli 12, 2007

    This year’s KDE conference was again worthwhile going to. Wish I had been able to stay longer. Talks were good and seeing familiar and new faces proved to be very nice again. I might be in the minority but in my opinion the initial lack of an Internet connection...

  • Revision Control with SVN

    By on Mai 11, 2007

    Today we finally switched to Subversion as our revision control system at work. After using CVS for about ten years, the list of things we didn’t like about it became long enough to justify switching to something different. At first it wasn’t quite clear what that „something different“ would...

  • KDE's Panel Vacuum

    By on April 27, 2007

    I’m quite amazed by how technologies which I used to discard as ‚hype‘ (like, Solid or Phonon or so) actually seem to work. For real. Maybe I should feel a bit of shame but I don’t since this reflex of being sceptical of projects which have a fancy code...

  • KJS Speedups

    By on März 27, 2007

    Best code is written with bad weather outside. This was proven by Maks recent work on KDE’s JavaScript engine at least. While cold and snow were plaguing North America Maks developed some nice and effective optimizations that were merged into trunk last night. Now what was this about? The...

  • KMail talking ManageSieve

    By on März 14, 2007

    My favourite IMAP server Archiveopteryx gained Sieve support with version 1.16 that came out last month. Apart from a few small harmless glitches it worked out of the box which finally means the end of client-side e-mail filtering for me. But it took Frerich less than a minute to...
