Krusader Team Celebrates 10th Birthday and Seeks New Contributors


Ye Olde Krusader.

Ten years ago a simple twin panel file manager was released. It had a few small glitches like showing rrr instead of rwx for permissions, had some compatibility issues with Debian and Solaris, did not save keyboard settings, but it was, in spite of many bugs, sort of usable for everyday work. Ten years ago Krusader started on the path to becoming a top file manager for a large range of operating systems and users.

It started with young developers Shie and Rafi, over some falafel. In spite of academic duties they kick started an application which became a very popular Total Commander like file manager for the Free Desktop. On January 1st 2002, version 1.0 was released by the Krusader Krew.

Fast forward ten years and the first beta for 2.2.0 has been released, codenamed 'DeKade'. It features better trash integration, many new tabs actions, queued packing and unpacking and much more.

First KMyMoney Beta Version Available for KDE 4 Platform

The KMyMoney team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 3.95. After 8 months of hard work, this release is the first version developed upon the KDE 4 Platform. We are confident that it is stable enough for use by early adopters. We would like to get much needed feedback from the community in order to make the new KMyMoney as rock-solid as previous releases.

For this version, the focus has been on allowing it to run on the latest KDE platform while maintaining feature-parity. Subsequent releases will make better use of the new capabilities provided by this new platform. Also, significant effort has gone into making KMyMoney available on all operating systems supported by the KDE development platform.

Introducing KDE 4 KNetworkManager

One of the few utility programs that are used every day on mobile devices is a wireless networking tool, but somehow this is one of the last applications to appear for KDE 4. With the autumn 2009 crop of Linux distributions, a usable client for the widely used NetworkManager system finally makes its debut.

The Amarok project has joined the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC). This move allows donors to give tax-deductible donations in the US, and it increases transparency in the spending of Amarok's funds. At the same time, we will not loosen our ties with the KDE project. Amarok is, and will always stay, a fully committed project under the KDE umbrella. Read on for more!

KDevelop Beta 6 and PHP Beta 1 Released


KDevelop 4 in action

The KDevelop team is proud to announce the sixth beta of KDevelop4. There haven't been any major features started since beta 5 as this is mostly a bugfix release (demonstrated by the list of fixed bugs). This also marks the end of the KDE 4.2 support. With this release KDevelop4 requires KDE 4.3 and Qt 4.5 to fully supply the GUI we want to provide our users with. It is also the last release that we're doing on behalf of ourselves, all upcoming betas will be done together with KDE 4.4. We are aiming at releasing with KDE 4.4.0 as we think that KDevelop4 is ready feature-wise and really needs to get a first release out of the door.
