KDE Applications 15.04 Adds KDE Telepathy Chat and Kdenlive Video Editing





Kdenlive is the leading video editor on Linux

Today KDE released KDE Applications 15.04 our suite of 150 applications. Notable additions in this release include Kdenlive the leading video editor on Linux and KDE Telepathy the chat application to unify your instant messaging.

Kdenlive is one of the best non-linear video editing software available. It recently finished its incubation process to become an official KDE project and was ported to KDE Frameworks 5. The team behind this masterpiece decided that Kdenlive should be released together with KDE Applications 15.04. Some new features are the autosaving function of new projects and a fixed clip stabilization. For the future the team plans to refactor big parts of the application and to bring back the MacOSX and Windows versions.

KDE Telepathy is our app for instant messaging. It was ported to KF5 and Qt5 and is a new member of the KDE Applications releases. It comes along with KAccounts which is a new system for setting up all your online accounts at one place.
