KDE 4.9 arrives with incremental improvements, KDE devs prepare for Qt 5

Filed under

The developers behind the KDE project announced today the official release of version 4.9, an update that brings improvements to KDE’s Plasma Workspaces, the KDE application stack, and the underlying KDE platform. The release is dedicated to Claire Lotion, a KDE contributor who recently passed away.

KDE’s Dolphin file manager has received several major improvements in 4.9, including support for displaying file metadata such as image resolutions. It’s also now possible to group and sort files by metadata properties. Other new features that have been added to the file manager include inline file renaming and an updated "places" sidebar. Dolphin’s version control system integration (which already works with git, CVS, and SVN) has been expanded to support Mercurial.

Second, is the format scheme that is used to write data on mass storage devices like hard drives and SSD’s. We are going to be talking about the first kind of file system here because the average user will interact with his or her file system every time they use a computer, the format that data is written in on their storage devices is usually of little concern to them. The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
