Second Day KDE 4 Multimedia Meeting

Filed under
KDE

Though it was still rainy here at the Annahoeve in the Netherlands, the KDE 4 multimedia meeting was definately up to speed. This article will report on the progress the hackers made yesterday, including the "why" and "what" of redesigning and speeding up amaroK, work on the KIO slaves and Phonon.

We had a quick start in the morning, several people where already busy hacking at 9. The morning was filled with hacking sessions and small get-togethers, and a few hours after lunch, we held a round table with everybody, asking what they had done so far.

Christian Mülhäuser and Seb Ruiz have been working on optimization of amaroK startup time.

Full Story.
