The Future of Kontact

Filed under
KDE

Supplemental to what we reported previously about the work in Randa [1, 2] there was a session on the future of Kontact, KDE’s personal information manager (PIM). Over the years this tool has evolved into a monster making both development as well as usage sometimes tricky. It’s time to cut hydra’s arms.

  • Secrets of Krita: the Third Krita Training DVD

    Comics with Krita author Timothée Giet is back with his second training DVD: Secrets of Krita, a collection of videos containing 100 lessons about the most important things to know when using Krita.

  • My Wishion of KDE – Prelude

    There are quite some things failing inside KDE but I heard there was quite some positive energy this year at Akademy and we just finished/ended the longest Randa Meetings yet and although these meetings were for me quite exhausting they were another great success and almost the size of half of Akademy this year. Just compare the group pictures. And I met again some great people, new and old, young and old, with great ideas, a lot of energy and willingness to put in some energy and with the incubator projects I sponsor there was and is even more enthusiasm coming to KDE.

  • Legacy system tray icons back in Plasma 5

    Legacy system tray icons are problematic; they don't scale, they don't fit in with the theme, they can't multiplex (be in two trays) and they're just generally very dated.

  • Kubuntu: A call for testers!

  • How I solved a digiKam panorama hiccup

    I've come across a stumble in digiKam panorama creation, but also found a way around it, too.

  • Kubuntu 15.10 Beta 2
  • Get your Kubuntu Wily (to become 15.10) Beta 2
  • libssh is running in the Matrix now

    With all of this implemented and new releases of the wrappers, which I’m preparing at the moment, all you have to do is to install cmocka, socket_wrapper, nss_wrapper and uid_wrapper and run ‘make test’. The Matrix will be created and libssh tested. You can find the cwrap libssh branch here.

    There is one test for a feature missing right now. We do not test keyboard-interactive authentication, but the cwrap project is working on a new wrapper to fix this. Stay tuned!

  • KDE: Kubuntu: #Akademy and #Randa oh my!

    Kubuntu Day landed on the same day as my BoF sadly so I did not get to attend much of that. I was able to attend the BoF with Munich and a lot was accomplished in regards to upstream KDE working closer with the Munich team. Overall Akademy was extremely successful in catching up with everyone and working with them in person.

  • Vote in the Kiki Drawing Challenge Contest
  • Done Porting!

    Technically, we're done porting Krita to Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5...

  • Why I love Plasma

    I’ll first say that this blog post very one sided towards KDE but I do like and love the work that every developer does for Desktop Environments like GNOME Shell, Unity, elementary’s Pantheon Shell and even Linux Mint’s Cinnamon. While I might get some names and descriptions wrong please do correct me.

  • KDE FreeBSD in my KDE FreeBSD

    This post carries on a bit about the way I build and test packages for FreeBSD. I only have one desktop machine, running FreeBSD amd64, and it needs to function as a desktop even while building and testing packages. Elsewhere, things like Project Neon and the OpenSUSE build service do something similar, on a much larger scale: building packages from various stages of development and delivering them to users. Here, though, I’m concentrating on end-to-end ports and packages testing for FreeBSD for a single computer and user.

  • Half-Left is back

    Since then, we got a great Visual Design Team, and we got an awesome default theme (and its dark version).

    But, two themes are not enough. People have different tastes.

    Now, Sean is back in the Plasma world.

  • Bugs fixed in Ark 15.08.1
  • Breeze is finished

    Talking about Kubuntu, Arch Linux, OpenSuse, …. Questions where I can find the Plasma Widgets, UI Session about Kmail, Plasma, Kdenlive … . Where Plasma Mobile should go, how the user should navigate through Plasma and the phone applications. Starting improvements for plasma. Talking how the VDG can improve the workflow between designers and development. Writing bug reports, fixing bugs. Make code changes, discuss it on reviewboard. Talk to the devs to fix some UI stuff. Go hiking and don’t stop talking about Plasma and KDE. That was Randa for me. It was amazing.

  • digiKam Recipes 4.9.1 Released
  • 184 Qt Libraries

    We have collected 184 third party Qt libraries on Inqlude now. This is a pretty complete map of the Qt ecosystem, quite an impressive number, and lots of useful libraries extending Qt for many purposes.

  • Vector Tiling in Marble Maps @Randa

    ...me and 50 other KDE developers met in the Swiss Alps for a week of hacking.

  • SuperTuxKart - A simple recipe for simple fun
    It's been a while since I've done a proper Linux game review. The reasons being, we now have Steam, so there's less of a distinction between Windows and Linux. That division is now blurred, and we're past the free-only, indie-only games of yore. Good. That, however, does not mean you can't be having fun for free. SuperTuxKart is one such title. It's nothing more than a point-and-shoot racer, arcade all the way, with you taking helm in one of the many funnily shaped vehicles and racing down some crazy tracks. Then, it's about taking on some opponents, in-game traps and perks, and gradually unlocking new levels as you make progress in the existing set. But let us explore in more depth.

    Three months after the first KDevelop 5.0 Beta release, I have the pleasure to announce our second beta release! We have worked hard on improving the stability and performance of our new KDevelop 5.0 based on Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5. We also continued to port many features from our old C++ language support to the new Clang-based C/C++ plugin, which is still an ongoing effort.

  • Looking for FreeBSD wallpaper for Plasma 5 Desktop
    Most distro’s that ship Plasma Desktop as .. well, as a desktop to work in, have their own default wallpaper choice that isn’t exactly the upstream default. OpenSUSE has things with geekos (which I personally really like, for their understatedness). KDE neon goes for the upstream default, but that is the nature of that particular distro.

(To the best of my knowledge, Canonical never really answered to his questions about finances.)

Fewer have heard of Calligra Suite, and those who have sometimes dismiss it as unnecessary.

We are not planning more bug fix releases for 2.9, though it is possible that we’ll collect enough fixes to warrant one release more, because there are some problems with Windows 10 that we might be able to work around.
