KDE SC 4.6 Review

Filed under
KDE

Hot off the oven, the latest from KDE was released just a few days ago. It builds on the greatly improved and reliable KDE 4.4 and 4.5 series and brings a number of exciting new features and enhancements, as well as a cool new look thanks to an impressive new wallpaper and much improved Kwin effects.

KDE SC 4.6 brings a completely redesigned activities system. I have to say I have never used it (and honestly don't see it that useful), but it seems this new system is less complicated and more intuitive. On the other hand, one piece that has also got a new design from the ground up, one I do care about, is the Power Management configuration system.

  • The Security Risks of Logging in With Facebook
     

    In a yet-to-be peer-reviewed study published on Freedom To Tinker, a site hosted by Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy, three researchers document how third-party tracking scripts have the capability to scoop up information from Facebook's login API without users knowing. The tracking scripts documented by Steven Englehardt, Gunes Acar, and Arvind Narayanan represent a small slice of the invisible tracking ecosystem that follows users around the web largely without their knowledge.

  • Facebook Login data hijacked by hidden JavaScript trackers
