People behind KDE: Sirtaj Singh Kang

Sirtaj Singh Kang is one of the app-producing machines that helped propel Unix into the desktop arena way back in the legendary days of the KDE genesis. His native tongue is Perl and his boot-up sequence involves a quirky coffee-shower combination. We also look forward to Taj's soon-to be-released mysterious Python application that will allegedly forever change the way we open the doors of luxurious buildings. Or something.

KDE 2.2beta1 and KOffice 1.1beta3 now frozen

Due to recent instabilities in the CVS code, Waldo Bastian has announced that KDE 2.2beta1 has been delayed in favour of a message and feature freeze that will last a few days. During that time, developers will be busy finding bugs and bringing KDE CVS up to shape for a beta release. This probably means that KDE 2.2 will be released closer to July 30 than the previously planned July 23.

Gideon Development Update

Two months ago, we announced the birth of Gideon, codename for the next generation version of KDevelop that was most notable for its modularity and extensibility. Since then, Gideon has made enormous strides -- not the least of which includes Java, Perl, Python, PHP and Fortran support, full Python scripting, and an editor framework that will allow one to plug in a favourite editor.
