Bring Your KDE Application to the Masses with Bretzn


Bringing things together...

Apart from being a tasty Bavarian bread-snack, Bretzn is the code-name for a collection of technology aimed at solving a problem which has existed in software development for a very long time: How do you get your applications to your users?

This is particularly a question for the many developers of KDE applications that are not part of KDE's six monthly Software Compilation releases. These developers must either provide binaries for a range of distributions themselves or hope that distribution volunteers will do the packaging for them.

Amarok Insider, Written By Google Code-In Students

The latest Amarok Insider features the writing of seven Google Code-In students, writing nine different articles. They range from an interview with developer Bart Cerneels to "How To install a new script in Amarok". Besides the mentors, students were able to get assistance and encouragement in their tasks and research from Amarok developers and users in the #amarok IRC channel on Freenode, which is what makes these articles of such high quality.

Season of KDE 2010

This year was the 4th Season of KDE. Season of KDE (SoK) allows KDE to help support students and worthwhile projects who didn't manage to get one of the limited places in the Google Summer of Code program. Each SoK student works on their chosen project with a mentor from KDE with experience in that area to help and guide them.

We had seven successful students working on six different projects and five different programs. Let's have a look at them.
