KDE SC 4.8 Upcoming Features

Filed under
KDE

Later this month we will see the release of the KDE SC 4.8 series, another one of the typical six-month cycles that KDE relentlesly goes through.

As we have seen since SC 4.4, probably the first truly stable and fast release cycle since KDE SC 4.x series started, KDE SC 4.8 will continue the tradition of building over the previous release cycle strengths. Given how much has happened in the last six months, I thought it was a good idea to review what's coming in the next few months. Most people will probably be aware of the highlights, but I think there is a lot of work that may have gone unnoticed that we should keep an eye on.

SEMANTIC DESKTOP

KDE SC 4.7 series witnessed massive improvements in the Semantic Desktop. Led by Sebastian Trueg, efforts concentrated on improving stability through bug fixing, but also on improving performance, optimizing resource use, as well as including some cool features.

Find The Perfect Linux-Compatible PC With Ubuntu's Hardware Database

Some PCs are more difficult to run Linux on than others — it’s all about the drivers. Some laptops are available with Linux pre-installed, but plenty aren’t — even though they may make great Linux PCs. The Ubuntu Certified Hardware database helps you find Linux-compatible PCs. Most computers can run Linux, but some are much easier than others. Certain hardware manufacturers (whether it’s Wi-Fi cards, video cards, or other buttons on your laptop) are more Linux-friendly than others, which means installing drivers and getting things to work will be less of a hassle.
