Global Shortcuts and the Lock Screen

Filed under
KDE

With Plasma 5 our lock screen architecture changed significantly. For example we do no longer support screen saver hacks or widgets on top of the locked screen. Both are very unlikely to make a return in future releases. This means that bug reports against the old infrastructure might no longer apply to our current code base. Two weeks ago I went through all bug reports and feature requests to evaluate whether they still apply to our new infrastructure or should be closed.

The Linux Setup - Jonathan Riddell, Kubuntu Developer

Interviews

I’m all for free-as-in-freedom. Because of the number of interfaces that software has with the world (both human and programmer), it’s very easy to lock people into proprietary software and create monopolies. Not having free competition is a bad way for any economy to run. I’m surprised at how infrequently this economic argument is made.

I’m also all for community-made software. It allows us to have control and fix problems that we find, to share knowledge, and to create professional and personal relationships. I love that I can go to almost any city in the world and meet up with someone who wants to chat about the code we work with.

Release date for Krita 2.9

Filed under
KDE

After a short discussion, we came up with a release date for Krita 2.9! It's going to be... February 26th, Deo volente. Lots and lots and lots of new stuff, and even the old stuff in Krita is still amazing (lovely article, the author mentions a few features I didn't know about).

Then it's time for the port to Qt5, while Dmitry will be working on Photoshop-style layer styles -- a kickstarter feature that didn't make it for 2.9.0, but will be in 2.9.x. A new fundraiser for the next set of amazing features is also necessary.

Of course, there are still over 130 open bugs, and we've got a lot to do still, but then the bugs will always be with us, and after 2.9.0 a 2.9.1 will surely follow. But I do care about our bug reports.

How does systemd relate to Plasma?

Filed under

Linux

It should be apparent that as developers there are parts we want to embrace as it. In many cases it allows us to throw away large amounts of code whilst at the same time providing a better user experience. Adding it as an optional extra defeats the main benefit.

Interview with Lucas Falcão

I think Krita is doing great and I really like the direction it’s going, the software it seems to be made for artists, at least I have this impression when I use the tools to work on the creation and painting of textures. I don’t hate anything in Krita, and I don’t use all the tools, but I think usability could always be improved.
