Kopete Roadmap rediscovered

Filed under
KDE

Some days ago I already reported that the Kopete developers decided to ship Kopete together with KDE 4.0. After posting the news I followed a link to the Kopete roadmap at Techbase and was happy to see that it is a up2date and very detailed roadmap about future development and planned features.

I didn’t knew that the Kopete team set that one up and must have missed it somehow (it exists for quite some months already), but I am now very happy that it exists - most FLOSS projects out there unfortunately don’t have such a list Confused

The most important news is that the new version Kopete 1.0 will not make it into KDE 4.0 but into KDE 4.1.

Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.
  • Parole Media Player 0.9.0 Released
    Development for the Xfce media player is back on! Well over a year since the last release, Parole 0.9.0 brings a fresh set of features and fixes.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features. The distribution is fairly minimal and is designed with cloud computing in mind, though it may also be used in other areas, particularly on servers. Read more
