Transparency here, transparency there....

For the last couple days, I've been working on making things transparent in KDE. This is pretty easy to do, but time consuming. Most notable success so far is with Konqueror. Next up, ksirc, and hopefully kicker. This code cannot go into 2.1, since we are in a feature freeze, but the following version of KDE should be quite transparent! [Ed: Also check out the transparency screenshots for Kasbar TNG.

Back in November, Reginald Stadlbauer announced a new rich text widget for Qt. That widget could provide, he said, a very stable base for KWord. So a rich text branch of KWord was started and became the focal point of KWord development... The problem was that the new widget was only slated to appear in Qt3.

"Business Ethics" in the Open Source Community?

What do we do when one of our own, a company with long-time roots in the Open Source community, rejects our code of ethics and resorts to deceitful tactics for the express purpose of undermining an Open Source project? It appears that the newly-named Ximian is doing exactly that.
