Tux Machines (TM)-specific
This week in the KDE Commit-Digest we find some really nice goodies. Of course there are plenty of the less glamorous but quite necessary commits as well. All together, things are proceding along at an exciting pace.
First up Bluetooth support was added to the KDE Solid api stack, as well as KMobileTools being ported to KDE4. It was mentioned that "breadcrumb navigation widget from Dolphin is made more modular to allow use in other KDE contexts."
Konsole has been updated to allow for more customization of the text cursor. Better file transfer support is now seen for the AIM protocol in Kopete. And "KWord gets the ability (through Kross scripting) to use an OpenOffice.org instance to import from supported file formats."
Kpackage is being ported to Smart package management. This sounds exciting. I personally can't wait to test that.
okular, a pdf viewer based on kpdf, is being brought back into main and Kremas, another image viewer, was imported into KDE svn for testing. kiriki, a dice game based on Yatzee, was put in kdereview.
Some highlights include:
Well, that's the high points folks. For all the details see this week's KDE Commit-Digest.
