    We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.5 Beta!

    There has been very little time between the 4.4 release and the 4.5 feature freeze, but 4.5 still comes with a bunch of very nice improvements.

    Locator now does fuzzy camel case matching in the same way as code completion does. Type “c andesu” in locator to open the “AndroidDebugSupport” class.

    Productivity apps can really make your work easier. If you are a Linux user, these 10 lesser-known free productivity apps for the Linux desktop can help you.. As a matter of fact, it’s possible keen Linux users have heard of all the apps on the list, but for somebody who hasn’t gone beyond the main apps, these should be unknown.

  • GNOME Foundation hackfest in Berlin

    Last weekend we held a GNOME Foundation hackfest in Berlin, as planned in August. That means not just a hackfest organised by the foundation, but to improve the foundation itself. Many of the topics we had to cover are interconnected and it’s a challenge to untangle it all and sort it out. Being in the same room, with a projector and a whiteboard, helped a lot. Many thanks to Kinvolk who let us use their

KDE
  • Qt2 ported for modern systems with cmake

    So, to continue my archeology process to revive old software, again i´m preparing my next step to revive KDE 2, on the so indirect baptized KDE restoration project.

    Despite KDE 1 last year, KDE 2 is a complete different beast and will take me some time to made it ready.

    The very base foundation, though is Qt2, the this time i decided do a better treatment to Qt to easier my further work. I based my work on clang compiler.

    Result is far from perfect, i decided publish on the very first stage of usage, but some strategies on the port still not here yet. but is perfectly usable, all examples compiles and runs.

KDE: KMyMoney’s WebConnect. QupZilla 2.2.0 (Soon Falkon), Qt Beta

Filed under
KDE
  • KMyMoney’s WebConnect

    Recently, I opened a new online account at a new institution. Unfortunately, they do not provide a direct online access using a protocol such as HBCI or OFX which are already integrated into KMyMoney, but only a web frontend. So what, I thought, I won’t use it on a daily basis and can probably live with manually entering the transactions into the ledger.

  • QupZilla 2.2 Released As The Browser's Last

    QupZilla 2.2 has been released as the last feature release for this open-source web-browser project prior to its re-branding initiative under the KDE umbrella as the Falkon project.

KDE: Blade, Plasma, and Ubuntu Rally

Filed under
KDE
  • Blade update - an alternative KRunner

    After David’s post, I got a few mails asking whether this change has anything to do with the project I started last summer, so I decided to provide a small update.

    My original plan was to ship a test version of Blade a few months after the project announcement, but that did not happen. The main reason was that there were some higher-priority things in Plasma I needed to work on, so I had to put this on hold a bit.

    While the project is not yet made public, some important things have happened that moved it forward quite a bit.

  • Plasma secrets: Custom app launchers - WINE, too

    I told you this was a beauty. It elegantly goes against all the accepted conventions of the Plasma desktop, including hidden desktop icons, task manager launchers linking to hidden icons, and Windows software running through WINE playing ball. All of this can be done relatively simply, quickly, easily, without any great messing about. I hope you like.

    One last thing, notice how my screenshots above no longer have any shadow, which is something that both Ksnapshot and Spectacle always do, if you use compositing? Well, that's another secret we will resolve next time!

  • KDE at #UbuntuRally in New York! KDE Applications snaps!

    I was happy to attend Ubuntu Rally last week in New York with Aleix Pol to represent KDE.

  • Clazy Results Visualizer for Qt

    Clazy is a clang plugin which extends the compiler with over 50 warnings related to Qt best practices ranging from unneeded memory allocations to API misuse. It’s an opensource project spawned by KDAB’s R&D efforts for better C++ tooling.

  • Kirigami Notation App

    And here I am writing on the blog after a long time.
    This time it’s about talking about my new project, becoming a developer!
    Unfortunately I can not study full time (in fact you see the results), however, I am to show you the “results” of my study.
    Thanks to the Kirigami module developed by Marco Martin and the ease of QtQuick here is my first application, that is, the Alpha version. The application for now is called “Notation”, but I will definitely make a vote for the names (suggest the names in the comments below).

  • Kirigami and color palettes

    A new release of Kirigami is about to come with the new version of KDE Frameworks about to be released, 5.38.

  • This week in Kdenlive

    The refactoring branch of Kdenlive is progressing nicely and we hope to merge our code to master in the last days of october to meet the KDE Applications 17.12 release schedule. Today we updated the AppImages of both stable and refactoring branch.

Containers, the GPL, and copyleft: No reason for concern

Though open source is thoroughly mainstream, new software technologies and old technologies that get newly popularized sometimes inspire hand-wringing about open source licenses. Most often the concern is about the GNU General Public License (GPL), and specifically the scope of its copyleft requirement, which is often described (somewhat misleadingly) as the GPL’s derivative work issue. One imperfect way of framing the question is whether GPL-licensed code, when combined in some sense with proprietary code, forms a single modified work such that the proprietary code could be interpreted as being subject to the terms of the GPL. While we haven’t yet seen much of that concern directed to Linux containers, we expect more questions to be raised as adoption of containers continues to grow. But it’s fairly straightforward to show that containers do not raise new or concerning GPL scope issues. Read more

Get ready to use Linux containers

One of the most exciting things to happen in the Linux world in the past few years is the emergence of containers — self-contained Linux environments that live inside another OS and provide a way to package and isolate applications. They're not quite virtual systems, since they rely on the host OS to operate, nor are they simply applications. Dan Walsh from Red Hat has said that on Linux, "everything is a container," reminding me of the days when people claimed that everything on Unix was a file. But the vision has less to do with the guts of the OS and more to do with explaining how containers work and how they are different than virtual systems in some very interesting and important ways.

Samsung unveils 860 PRO and EVO SATA SSDs with improved Linux compatibility

If you haven’t yet upgraded your operating system drive from a mechanical hard disk to a solid state drive, you are really missing out. Prices have dropped dramatically over the years, while at the same time, reliability has improved. Swapping an HDD for an SSD can be very easy too, thanks to cloning software that often comes with the drive. Before you buy some random SSD, please know that they are not all the same. True, SATA models largely have equal speeds these days, but the brand really matters from a reliability standpoint. If you want a dependable solid state drive for your data, you should take a look at Samsung. Its offerings are top notch, and today the company launches its newest SATA models -- the 860 PRO and EVO.
