Plasma Next Is Preparing to Replace KDE, First Beta Now Available for Download

Filed under
KDE

Plasma Next has been built to eventually replace the current KDE Applications and Platform, which seems to have run its course. The project is still being maintained and new versions will still be released, but the new Plasma project is the future.

To make things more manageable for the developers, the project has been separated in a few smaller ones that in the end will come together in a single, bigger product. This is not only a change of name, but a true evolution of KDE.

KF5

It is too flat. They appear to be trying to copy windows 8.

This will be the kde/qt theme in KF5

which looks beautiful.

I don't know what they are thinking in terms of design

Theme

That new theme looks awful.

Not Flat Enough...

Get with it... Crystal and shiny things are long over. Flat is in, and I don't think the icons are flat enough and don't blend well with the rest of the theme. Personally, they need to look at what's trending in Android for ideas on themes. They need to get the base icon theme right, because its the only one that'll be complete enough to use for most.

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

    Users of the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling operating system can now update their computers to the latest and greatest Firefox Quantum web browser.
  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
