AudioCD KIOSlave Debut

For those of you who like to stay on the bleeding edge, Rik Hemsley announced that he's officially checked in an 'audiocd:' kioslave. Provided you have the cdparanoia libraries installed, this will allow you to browse your audio CDs in Konqueror, and convert audio tracks (with error correction!) to wav format by simply dragging them to your desktop. Great stuff! Hooks for CDDB support have been included, but the actual code has yet to be written.

QextMDI-1.0.0 released.

It's a Qt-extension widget set for MDI that is an alternative to QWorkspace. Compared to QWorkspace, your application is configurable in several modes - MDI like QWorkspace and Unix-like with all windows as toplevel. You can compile QextMDI as a KDE2 extension library, it then bases on KMainWindow and kdeui.so. You can decorate the MDI views with Win9x, KDE1 and default-KDE2 windowmanager style.

KDevelop 1.3 is coming ahead !

Breaking news! The KDevelop Team will release version 1.3 of its C/C++ IDE for UNIX within the next couple of weeks. The new release has a lot of new features regarding KDE 2 and Qt 2.2 development, particularly a project file generator which creates a project file out of your existing automake/autoconf project on the fly so you can start working with KDevelop on your former project within seconds. I´ve tried this last night with the kdebase module - and it worked!
