KDE 3: All About the Apps Part 3

Filed under
KDE

KDE 3.5 is a vivid platform. We looked at some reasons why three weeks ago and also last week. Today, we look at the photo-manager Digikam, the plotting application QtiPlot, the LaTeX-dreamteam Kile and KBibTex and the upcoming KDE 3.5.3 release.

Digikam

If you have a digital SLR or other high-quality digital camera, you have probably noticed that the photos stored on it are not just simple JPEGs. High-end cameras offer the RAW file format, which stores the unmodified data from the cameras sensors. This means no quality is lost, and you can get 100% clarity out of your pictures. Many cameras also offer 12 bit and 16 bit colourspaces. Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't support these colourspaces and also cannot handle LCMS colour schemes.

Kile

Kile is KDEs LaTeX-editor of choice. Version 1.9 was released on March 17 and makes Kile even better.
