KDE No Longer Competitive? Developer Calls It Quits
Peter Penz, the main developer of the Dolphin file manager for the KDE desktop and a K Desktop user since KDE v1.2, is calling it quits after contributing to KDE for more than the past half-decade. His reason for leaving the development of the popular open-source desktop environment is interesting.
With the release of KDE 4.9 in August there will be the Dolphin 2.1 file manager and that will be the last release to be handled by Peter Penz, someone that's been working on Dolphin since before the KDE 4.0 release.
