The KDE Community proudly presents the second Beta release for KDE 4.0. This release marks the beginning of the feature freeze and the stabilization of the current codebase. Since the libraries were frozen with the first Beta, KDE developers have been adding features and functionality to their applications. Now it is time to start polishing these features
Features Xorg server 1.4, New applications: xbacklight, New drivers: xf86-video-glide, xf86-video-vermilion, and xdm: Xft support added.
infoworld blogs: There's a slew of open source conferences coming up this fall in the US and in Europe. Here are a few of the highlights:
GIMP 2.4.0-RC2 is finally there. The developers have fixed quite some bugs since RC1 but it's not the final thing yet.
beranger: Dear Mandriva friends, your distro runs rather well and smoothly even as RC1 but it's such a bloat that I'll do my best to educate myself to that point that I'd eventually only use some BSD flavor(s) at home!
Penguin Pete: Following on from my recent exploration of Heretic, I next tried Hexen. This has been motivated by my curiosity; while we've all played Doom and Quake to death, these two interim games just never seemed to get the press. Hexen, too, runs smoothly in DOSbox on my Slackware setup.
ruminations: On this first day with PC-BSD I sat down to extend the system. For one, I was curious whether I could play my MP3 files out of the box and -if not- how easy it was to remedy that. Secondly, I wanted to install a program for offline blogging.
kmandla.wordpress: Well, after an egregiously long time, I seem to have finally finished installing Xubuntu 7.04 on the World’s Ugliest Laptop, and the results are … well, I’ll let you judge.
kernelTRAP: In an effort to fully understand the math proposed by Roman Zippel in his Really Fair Scheduler, Ingo Molnar implemented a simplified version of the logic on top of his Completely Fair Scheduler code which he then humorously labeled the Really Simple Really Fair Scheduler.
rudd-o: Don’t you hate it when you leave a shell open and you can’t unmount a disk volume because the shell has a firm grip on a directory in that disk? Well, there’s a solution.
masuran.org: I recently got into a discussion with some OOXML backers about whether or not OOXML can/should be made an ISO standard. To support my argument that the OOXML specification can't be fixed with a BRM, I've decided to compare the comments that were addressed at the ODF BRM and the ones that will have to be addressed at the OOXML BRM.
linux.com: If you want the old-time GNU/Linux experience, try configuring a Web camera. Unlike most peripherals, webcams are generally not configured during installation. Moreover, where printers have the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) and its interfaces, with webcams you are generally thrown back on whatever resources you can find on the Internet and your own knowledge of kernel modules and drivers.
OSWeekly: In order for Automatix to be as hated as it has become by a select few, we need to first examine the reasons why the application is allegedly being targeted with such harsh words. With this article, we will closely examine why.
arstechnica: Opera has always defied conventional wisdom: in the past, the company was able to survive by selling web browsers when Microsoft and Netscape were giving them away. More recently, the company shifted to giving away its desktop browser. Now, the company has released alpha builds of the latest version of their desktop product, Opera 9.5.

searchsecurity.techtarget: Intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems (IDS and IPS, respectively) provide the ability to inspect and analyse network traffic and either generate alerts or drop traffic in the event that an attack or a malicious event is detected. We're going to demonstrate.

techrepublic blogs: Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers around today. But what does the Mozilla team have in store for us along security lines? To find out, let’s take a look at the pre-release version of Firefox 3 (code-named Gran Paradiso 1.9 Alpha 7).

zdnet: I finally had a chance to meet with our new librarian today. After being without an actual librarian for so long, it was incredibly cool to talk with someone who knew something more about academic research than how to Google. And best of all, she said, “I’m not afraid of learning new things. Why don’t you set up a server with one of the open source systems and I’ll give it a shot.”
arstechnica: Today marked the mildly delayed new release of X.org version 7.3, which corresponds to server version 1.4. The X.org community has been working out the last of the bugs since their code-base became semi-frozen on August 1st and are now confident that the release will be worth the wait.
