Customize.org Invites the KDE Community

Recently Customize.org, one of the original desktop customization sites on the Web, has added some sections for KDE skins, themes and art such as cursors for general X11. We'd like to invite the KDE art community to submit their work to our site. By attempting to bring GNOME, KDE, and Windows artists together under one roof, we hope that we can increase porting and cooperation among all the communities. So come join us and show us what you've got!

KDE Conquers the Vectors with KSVG

KSVG has recently been moved to the kdegraphics module, meaning that KSVG will now be part of the KDE 3.2 release. KSVG aims to be a full flavored implementation of the W3C SVG standard. Some of you will think of icons when we speak of SVG but SVG is much more: It is a web technology with full ECMAScript/DOM support.
