As always, very nice to read the digest.
Also, good luck with your work :)

next step calendar and we can share kalendar + kontact with my android phone.

I am waiting for that too!

And also with the upcoming Palm Pre, and likely other future phones. I'm not a fan of "cloud computing", as I like to have my data on my machines, but cloud syncing makes a heck of a lot of sense and appears to be where tech is going. These kinds of things really allow KDE to fit into part of the next emerging workflow.

Agreed. It's not really practical for me to insist on being connected to the internet at all moments, so my laptop is the primary repository of my data. So I am very excited about syncing data, particularly calendar data as it will be a major improvement simply in allowing my family to coordinate all of our complicated schedules.

Since I'm not doing the coding myself, I will wait patiently for this feature. But given the rate at which KDE is improving I bet I won't be waiting long...

Kudos to the developers!

Good to hear of progress being made on K3b! This should be good under KDE 4...

But... Don't you think that its kinda sad that I can't login using to a site dedicated to promoting KDE and relaying news about KDE with Konqueror.

The web browser is a central application on any modern desktop and Konqueror simply is broken in so many many ways. If I wanted to use gtk based apps I would be using gnome or xfce. But I love KDE and I am really frustrated by Konqueror and the requirement to use Firefox and consequently the gnome plugins that plugin directly.

Please put the appropriate focus on KDE/qt based browser. Even it means simply wrapping around gecko and utilizing the KDE's recorded file associations.


Which site are you meaning? If you mean this site, I'm logged in with Konqueror 4.2.1 without any problems.

I agree with you. KDE deserve a better browser. Right not I can not use Konqueror to Login to any website. It's a bug.

I can not use konqueror to chat or writing a rich text format message in GMail.

The google contacts integration is really great!!!
Seems like the framework is progressing nicely... compliments guys ;-)

nice digest ,is there anything new about this.
