dot.kde.org: Konsole has been a staple of KDE since KDE 2.0, as has been showing signs of a little bit of clutter and wear. So, Robert Knight has stepped in to clean up the program's code, and more than anything else, fix a cluttered and difficult interface.

Raiden's Realm: Today's section, part 8 of our series on the KDE Control Center, is a very important section because it involves both your system security and your privacy. These are two things that even the most novice user should be well aware of and should take great care in observing, managing and maintaining these on their computer.
Tom Albers's blog: Sometime ago Volker Krause extracted the mail sending part from KMail and put it in a separate library. Last night Volker changed KMail to also use MailTransport. So now KMail, Mailody and KNode are all using MailTransport. That means that when you add or change a smtp-server in Mailody, it is also available in KMail and KNode.

Raiden's Realm: One of the greater benefits I've found while using KDE is the wide range of applications that come bundled with it. While some would call that bloat, I call it a benefit. But one of the disadvantages of having so many included applications is that sometimes some really good programs get lost in the shuffle or forgotten about. These are what I call the "Lesser Apps of KDE".
behindkde.org: For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to North America for the first time this series to talk to an IRC veteran and the author of ground-shaking, in-depth promotional articles on the interesting road towards KDE 4 - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Troy Unrau.
Lateral Opinion: Kmail searches slowly. I have been a kmail user for a couple of years, since I settled in my own home office with my own computer. However, it annoys me that it takes sooooo long to find a message in my mailstore. Enter mairix.

Beranger: I do not intend to be rude and inconsiderate for the hard work of an entire team, but if KDE 4.0 will release end-October, it will be a big stain on the image of the KDE project. The current 3.90.1 is still what I would call "a proof of concept", for not saying it's a joke.
dot.kde.org: The KDE Community is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first alpha release of the KDE Desktop Environment, version 4.0. This release is a basis for the integration of powerful new technologies that will be included in KDE 4.
