Second KDE 4 Developers Snapshot Available

Filed under
KDE

The second KDE 4 developers snapshot is now available. This 3.80.2 release includes source from all the KDE modules. Application developers are strongly advised to work primarily on KDE 4 from now on.

This release builds with Qt 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 (but not the 4.2 preview). Packages are available for Kubuntu and currently working through the SUSE buildservice.

KDE 3.80.2 are available for Kubuntu Edgy

Packages of KDE 3.80.2 are available for Kubuntu Edgy. In this second developers snapshot of KDE 4 full sessions seem to be running nicely. Lots of things crash but it's a good start. As a distro developer one of my current worries is how KDE 3 apps will run under KDE 4, with these packages it works except for kioslaves which complain about klauncher breaking. So if I can work that one out, it should be OK.

Why Docker, Containers and systemd Drive a Wedge Through the Concept of Linux Distributions

The announcement of Rocket by CoreOS was perceived by many to be a direct challenge to Docker, particularly as it came on the eve of DockerCon Europe and threatened to overshadow news coming out at the event. Docker, Inc. CEO Ben Golub was quick to fire back with his ‘initial thoughts on the Rocket announcement’. This piece isn’t about the politics of ecosystems and VC funded startups, which I’ll leave to Colin Humphreys (and note an excellent response from Docker Founder and CTO Solomon Hykes). It also isn’t about managing open source community, which I’ll leave to Matt Asay. Here I want to look at systemd, which lies at the heart of the technical arguments. Read more
