Mr. Cappuccio states, "The best part of this project, though, has still to come.

Talking with the developers of Tenor, the context linking environment for KDE, we discovered that Kat could be considered the perfect complement for it, because Kat collects information about the content and metadata of the files.

Therefore we agreed to merge the two project in order to develop a complete search environment (content+context) perfectly and seamlessly integrated in KDE.

In the next releases, you will see a metamorphosis that will completely transform Kat while it gets integrated in KDE.

People don't need a desktop search engine. They need to find what they are searching for. And they will do that without even knowing that they are using Kat."
