Finally, the release!

March 28th, 2005

With the release of the new KDE User Guide, the audio cd ripping guide I wrote some time ago, the one which got a highly commended note by the judges of the KDE Docs competition, finally sees light of the day! Props to me!

Now to go and check if that guide still works as-is for […]

The prayers of thousands have been answered - Ubuntu now comes in a KDE edition! The folks behind the push for KDE have just released their first bunch of amalagamated bits for us folks to burn on shiny coasters. Live CDs here and Install CDs here.

All right. I’ve finally gotten off my lazy behind and uploaded the KDE 3.4 Beta 1 screenshots that’ve been lying on my disk for ever now. For those not in the loop, KDE 3.4 is planned for release in late February.

December 22nd, 2004

The wise men at Trolltech have released the first beta of Qt 4, the next major revision of their development framework. The Dot has the details.
