KDE Proudly Presents Kirigami UI!

KDE has a long tradition of providing user interface components beyond the basics that are offered in Qt itself. With KDE Frameworks 5, these have become more easily available for Qt developers who are not part of KDE. Now, with KDE's focus expanding beyond desktop and laptop computers into the mobile and embedded sector, our QWidgets-based components alone are not sufficient anymore. In order to allow developers to easily create Qt-based applications that run on any major mobile or desktop operating system (including our very own existing Plasma Desktop and upcoming Plasma Mobile, of course), we have created a framework that extends the touch-friendly Qt Quick Controls: Welcome Kirigami UI!

Plasma Team Gets Physical

In March, the yearly meeting of KDE's Plasma team was held in Geneva, kindly hosted by the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN). In-person meetings provide unique opportunities to work together face-to-face, at high bandwidth to tackle problems together and plan for the future. As there were some other groups present during this meeting, notably the visual design group and the Wiki cleanup team, there was ample opportunity to think outside of the Plasma box.

Getting Physical -- Plasma

The Plasma team discussed many topics that are currently being worked on, or need more attention, but also sat down to hack on the code. The result was a nice mix of hands-on activities and dreaming of the future.

GSoC 2016 logo

All interested students are encouraged to begin working with the KDE community.

The KDE GSOC guide is a good place for students to start before beginning to create their proposals. The KDE community creates software in teams; students should find a team working on software they want to help with, get to know team members, familiarize themselves with the code-base, and start fixing bugs.

Announcing the KDE community's Distribution Outreach Program

puzzle-cooperation-partnership
The people who package and distribute our software to the world are crucial to our user's experience. In keeping with our original KDE vision, we want to improve the working relationships between distributions and KDE developers. Not only do we want to foster professional friendship, but we also want to help our software shine in each distribution.

Share your love for Free Software

#ilovefs banner

Love! Ah, that “serious mental disease” which make us reveal the best (and, sometimes, the worst) of our unconscious fantasies, longings, fears, defenses and internal images. And we love many things, sometimes in unthinkable and wacky ways. Some people love the melancholic sound of the cello, ice-cream, dancing, and reading, while others may even love insects, slowly pulling shoelaces out of sneakers, or that feeling after sneezing. It doesn't matter what, we love anything that makes our neurotransmitters dancing frantically and aimlessly like there is no tomorrow.
