4.6 RC 1 Available, KDE PIM Delayed

Filed under
KDE

Right before Christmas, KDE has published the first candidate for the upcoming release of KDE Platform, Plasma and Applications 4.6. The focus at this stage is on fixing bugs and completing translations and artwork. As such, the rework of the Oxygen icon set is nearing completion, many bugs reported by testers in recent weeks have been fixed and stabilization is still in full swing.

KDE's release team has decided to not include the new release of KDE-PIM, containing the Kontact groupware client and the new KMail 2 which is based on the Akonadi groupware cache in this release due to open issues with migration of large sets of data from the traditional client. These bugs are being worked on as we speak, but the risk at this point is too high to include the new Kontact in the 4.6.0 release.

Libreboot Drama Continues, GNU Might Keep The Project

It's been one week since the Libreboot downstream of Coreboot announced it would leave the GNU and denounced the FSF over supposedly a transgendered individual having been fired by the this free software group.

Since then, no actual proof has been presented to back up these claims by the Libreboot maintainer but the drama around it has seemingly continued. Waking up this morning, I received an email as part of a long email chain from Leah Rowe about how the "GNU project refuses to let go of libreboot" and she wrote, "GNU project has told me that they will not allow libreboot to leave GNU. This is quite possibly the biggest insult imaginable, considering what has happened." Read more
