KDE 4 Freeze

Filed under
KDE

Just a reminder folks! FREEZE for tagging is tonight at midnight, UTC! Any changes not in SVN at that point will not be part of the 4.0.0 release. The release team has requested no commits to those modules being part of KDE 4.0.0 until further notice starting at midnight, after which I'm sure they will make the appropriate announcements of how 4.0.1 will be opened. In addition, this freeze should apply to all extragear apps that are scheduled to be released alongside 4.0.0.

(exceptions to the freeze are made for build fixes, if required -- ask winterz, toma, dirk or someone in the know on irc.)

The APM Linux port was developed by both companies, as well as several academic institutions. The BeagleBone-based “Erle-brain” autopilot is built into the $490-and-up Erle-copter quadcopter.

With applications able to run in the background and sync as they see fit, Android can rapidly eat through your cellular data allowance if you are not careful. While it’s fine to let the data run free on wi-fi, you’ll want to restrict your data usage when out and about. Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so. If a smartphone is all about being in control, this is the option that gives you confidence. Read more
