Sneak Peeks at openSUSE 10.3: KDE 4

Filed under

SUSE

openSUSE 10.3 will see the first small parts of KDE 4 creeping into the distribution. KDE 3 will still be the default KDE session for openSUSE 10.3, but KDE 4 will be making its way in steadily. The online repository will contain a current KDE 4 development snapshot, the DVD will have a fully functional and working KDE 4 session, and even on the KDE Installation CD you will have some KDE 4 games, KRDC and KRFB.

Today we will see what exactly is new in openSUSE 10.3’s KDE 4 applications and we’ll also be talking to Dirk Müller, a long-time openSUSE and KDE core developer.

KDE 4: Discover a New Desktop

KDE 4 will contain a plethora of new innovative technologies to revolutionise the Linux desktop. One of the greatest parts of the new KDE version is the porting of KDE to Qt 4, the C++ toolkit that KDE is based on. Other large improvements include projects within KDE 4 such as: Solid, a new device framework; Plasma, the new panel and user interface; Phonon, a multimedia framework; Oxygen, a new style and icon theme set for KDE 4; and Dolphin, the new default file manager.

This article however will be focusing on the new KDE 4 applications that are directly available to an openSUSE 10.3 user, and will not provide a complete overview of the changes underway for the new KDE 4 desktop, though they are well documented elsewhere.

Small scripts and console tools that can be easily integrated into large projects, feature-rich applications that offer everything a complete solution, well designed tools, games that encourage real participation, and eye catching candy. Open source software holds many compelling advantages over proprietary software. Open source improves the quality of the code, keeps costs down, encourages innovation and collaboration, combined with superior security, freedom, flexibility, interoperability, business agility, and much more.
