Task managers on mobile: daydreaming about new possible approaches

Filed under
KDE

With my previous post about killing the back button I got a some scepticism about it from some users, but what was common in all those feedbacks was the approach to manage different apps: yes killing the back button breaks some things, but I wrote it mainly to introduce the real idea: new approaches to task managing on mobile devices.

Linux

Arch Linux developers have begun phasing out the KDE 4 desktop and automatically upgrading users to KDE Plasma 5.

With the KDE 4 stack effectively being unmaintained now and the newly-released Plasma 5.5 being in good shape stability wise, Arch packagers are dropping Plasma 4 and related KDE 4 code. They recommend any remaining KDE 4 users to upgrade as soon as possible or switch to a maintained desktop.

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Extended Review: New Features and Improvements

    KDE – desktop environment written in C++/Qt/QML and better for users which need more and love the powerful instruments. KDE can help you in everyday tasks like work with web, multimedia (photo, video, music), text and specific tasks: programming, video editing, education, games and many others. Many peoples say that KDE is very good for users with Windows experience, but I’m not sure. I highly recommend to try KDE: this desktop environment can give you many positive emotions.

Ark 15.08 was the first Ark release after the port to KF5, so there wasn’t much room for new features.
With the upcoming 15.12 release the situation is quite different, as there are a significant number of changes that are worth of a blog post.

    We would like to try something new for the Kdenlive community: Kdenlive Cafés. These are one to two hour informal meetings on irc.freenode.net in channel #kdenlive. We might select certain topics for these Cafés but normally you can just chat about recent things in Kdenlive development, ask questions to developers and other users and talk about the progress of this great and free non-linear video editor.

  • Randa Meetings 2015 - Huge Success Again

    Every meeting tends to start with the arrival of the participants, as did the Randa Meetings. Most people arrived by airplane, so either at the Geneva or Zurich airport, both of which are basically at the other ends of Switzerland. But fortunately Switzerland is a small country, so taking the train to Randa only took a couple of hours. Friendly helpers were at the airports to greet people and hand them out a day ticket, which allowed them to use most of the public transports in Switzerland without additional fees. The journey up to Randa is quite an interesting one, as from Visp on it is a rather steep trail up the mountains. As the region is also frequently visited by tourists, the trains have been built with that in mind, so people were able to enjoy a scenic panorama view.

  • News from mu
    I have been writing several posts about emacs but today I would like to specifically tell my readers about the nifty tool I use for email management, mu and its main component, mu4e. Just before I start, let me briefly remind a few things about email on emacs: there’s not a single tool to do everything around email. In fact, there’s quite a lot of different tools, related or not, that perform one job but does it quite well. As an example, there is one tool to fetch the emails from your IMAP servers, one tool to index them on your system, another one you could call an email client, but wait, here’s at least one more: a tool to compose and send emails. Sometimes, the tools are integrated with one another, sometimes they are not, but they are always a collection of disctinct parts.
