Repeating what became a constant on last years, KDE project is bringing an eventful series of presentations and activities on community driven software to the FISL, the Fórum Internacional de Software LIvre, which will be realized at Porto Alegre, south of Brazil, starting July 7.
Lydia Pintscher, our very own KDE e.V. Board President and a gem of a person; will be giving the Community Keynote Talk at Akademy 2015, in A Coruña, Spain. This is just a tiny peak into her brain for all that is in store for you in her talk.
Today we celebrate 20 years since the first release of Qt was uploaded to sunsite.unc.edu and announced, six days later, at comp.os.linux.announce. Over these years, Qt evolved from a two person Norwegian project to a full-fledged, social-technical world-wide organism that underpins free software projects, profitable companies, universities, government-related organizations, and more. It's been an exciting journey.
The work on unified graphics for GCompris was completed in the time allocated by the fundraiser. Here is a video to show the result.
15% of the goal was funded, so not all of the work could be completed in the time proposed. But there are updates to all the core components, the main menu with all the activities icons and a good bunch of activities.
Today, the KDE Community is happy to announce the release of KDE Applications 15.04.1.
This minor update includes a number of bugfixes, focusing especially on Kdenlive, Okular, Umbrello, and Marble. In addition to software bugs, issues with translations have also been addressed in this release.
Beyond the core of KDE Applications, this update includes a long-term support update for the Plasma Workspaces (4.11.19), the KDE Development Platform (4.14.8), and the Kontact Suite (4.14.8).
