With commit 546830, KDE says good-bye to one of its longest friends: DCOP. The technology has served us well for 6 years, to the point that has become one of our most proeminent features. Many KDE applications are given an edge over their competitors by supporting advanced functionality through DCOP: you can tell a Konqueror page to evaluate a JavaScript code snippet (think document.write...), tell a Kate window to raise itself, Kontact to check email or Kopete to send an automated message, etc.

We now say hello to DCOP's younger brother: D-BUS. I merged this morning all the changes I had in a separate branch back into trunk. This completes one phase of the work and starts a new one!
