Wednesday 8th of June 2016 07:38:33 PM

    As you may know (unless you’ve been living in Alpha Centauri for the past century) the openSUSE community KDE team publishes LiveCD images for those willing to test the latest state of KDE software from the git master branches without having to break machines, causing a zombie apocalypse and so on. This post highlights the most recent developments in the area.
  • Krita Post-Kickstarter News

  • Akademy! and fundraising
  • Plasma 5.6 – Clean installation impression
    I was wondering if i should just be silent, since this is a negative post about Plasma. On the other hand we should not be afraid negative critics, learn from them, improve and make a better product.

Software (IceCat, Xen Orchestra, Attic, and ownCloud Client)

  • IceCat 38.8.0 release
    GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.
  • Xen Orchestra 5.0 Released With Several New Features
  • Let Attic Deduplicate and Store your Backups
    Data loss is one of those things we never want to worry about. To that end we go to great lengths to find new techniques and software packages to ensure those precious bits of data are safely backed up to various local and remote media.
  • ownCloud Client 2.2.x
    A couple of weeks ago we released another significant milestone of the ownCloud Client, called version 2.2.0, followed by two small maintenance releases.
