  • Announcing Board of Directors Elections 2015
  • Gnome shell Hello world

    Gnome Shell, besides providing the main user interface for GNOME 3, is a Javascript shell with bindings to many native interfaces that allow e.g. Window manipulation, graphics rendering and animations, compositing, etc. It also allows developers to write extensions changing Gnome Shell’s behavior.

  • Kate from KDE Applications 15.04 – KF 5.9

    That is the first time that I use a distro-shipped Kate that is based on KF5 (and no other Kate 4.x is installed any more as escape route).

  • Work begins on KDE Plasma 5.4

    It has only been a few days since Plasma 5.3 was released, now work has begun on the 5.4 release. Plasma 5.4 is scheduled for launch in August, in time for the next Kubuntu release.

  • Performance and Animation (and more): Join Krita’s 2015 Kickstarter Project

    Last year’s kickstarter was a big success and all the support resulted in the biggest, best Krita release ever, Krita 2.9, with a huge number of exciting features. In fact, this week we’ll be releasing Krita 2.9.4, the first version of Krita with the Photoshop-type layer styles feature included! (As well as speed-ups and dozens of bug fixes…)

  • A summer of animation

    This summer Krita is going all in for animation. Not only do we have a Google Summer of Code project focusing on it, but it will also be a major point in this year's Kickstarter campaign, alongside with major performance improvements.

  • collaborative editing for the win

    On the first day of the Kolab Summit we announced that Kolab is getting full extended MAPI support. That was in itself a pretty fantastic announcement, but it was accompanied by announcements of instant messaging, WebRTC and collaborative editing.
