Konstruct updated for 3.4.2

Konstruct is a build system which helps you install KDE releases and applications on your system. It downloads defined source tarballs, checks their integrity, decompresses, patches, configures, builds, and installs them. A complete KDE installation should be as easy as "cd meta/kde;make install". Optionally, you can install additional applications like KDevelop or KOffice (for example, "cd apps/office/koffice;make install").

Now installs KDE 3.4.2 and KOffice 1.4.1. Added KSystemLog 0.3.1, KTorrent 1.0 and Tellico 0.13.8. Updated all included other applications.

  • Puppet Acquires Distelli, Boosting Its Cloud Automation Offerings
    Puppet, the open source company that markets cloud-native software management tools, has acquired startup Distelli. Based in Seattle, Distelli offers a software as a service platform used by developers to build, test, and deploy code written in any language to any server, including cloud platforms. This is an obvious good match, as both platforms enable developers to manage infrastructure and applications across the entire software delivery process to make app development quicker. "Today, a company's success is predicated on how quickly and successfully it can deliver new experiences to customers through software," Puppet's CEO, Sanjay Mirchandani, said in a statement. "Automation makes world-class application delivery straightforward for every enterprise, not just for companies born in the cloud. Together with Distelli, we are bringing a comprehensive solution for orchestrating and automating the entire software delivery lifecycle, from infrastructure, all the way up through containers."
