Mandriva adds a semantic layer to the KDE 4 desktop
On the occasion of aKademy 2007, the annual conference of KDE developers and users, Mandriva is proud to announce together with the NEPOMUK partners and the KDE community that the NEPOMUK-KDE project it leads is poised to deliver a sea change in the Linux desktop experience.
NEPOMUK-KDE introduces semantic capabilities to the upcoming release of the K Desktop Environment (KDE 4), providing an interoperable framework that can be harnessed by all KDE applications to allow annotating and interlinking any and all desktop objects.
Building upon existing standards and open source technologies, the NEPOMUK-KDE framework is the first desktop-wide semantic system to become a reality. The framework provides rich application programming interfaces allowing for content annotation using well defined relationships between the information elements and for advanced content search from any KDE application. KDE Dolphin - the new KDE file manager - and KDE PIM - an application suite for managing personal information - count among the early adopters of the innovative NEPOMUK libraries.
