Pimp My PIM!

Software

I worked a bit on some user-interface improvements for kdepim applications. So far I worked on KOrganizer and Akregator.

KOrganizer

Here is a screenshot of KOrganizer when I started:

My first change was to remove all double-margins from the main window:

This gives more room for actual content, but the event indicators (the green up and down arrows indicating some events are outside the view) was wasting some vertical space. I replaced them with overlayed indicators:

You might notice I got a bit creative here: I didn’t use an icon for the indicators. Instead I used unicode characters representing arrows, namely “UPWARDS DASHED ARROW” or U+21E1: ⇡ and “DOWNWARDS DASHED ARROW” or U+21E3: ⇣ (Thanks to KCharSelect for making it easy to search for arrow characters)

Linux Kernel 4.14 Now Ready for Mass Deployments as First Point Release Debuts

Renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced today the Linux 4.14.1 kernel, the first point release of the Linux 4.14 kernel series, which is the first to be supported for the next six years. The Linux 4.14.1 kernel is marked as "stable" on the kernel.org website, giving the green light to OS developers to add it to their repositories. Arch Linux developers have already pushed the Linux 4.14.1 kernel to the "Testing" repositories, for early adopters, so we may soon see a rebase of the operating system on Linux kernel 4.14, which brings major new features like support for AMD Secure Memory Encryption, Heterogeneous Memory Management to support upcoming GPUs, and bigger memory limits in x86 hardware.
