  • Krita 3.0 Up To Release Candidate Stage

    Krita, KDE's incredible digital painting and illustration program, is getting very close to their major 3.0 milestone with today's availability of their release candidate.

  • Krita 3.0 Open-Source Digital Painting Tool Is Around the Corner, RC1 Out Now

    The development cycle of the major Krita 3.0 open-source and cross-platform digital painting software is almost over, and a final release should be unveiled to users in the coming weeks.

  • A possible KRunner future and network searches

    KRunner is one of the rare areas of Plasma that have been mostly stagnating since 4.x, and is one of the rare parts of Plasma that are still known to crash. At least, the UI has improved in the last few releases thanks to Kai who rightfully became the new KRunner maintainer.

    Now, while the UI is still getting some love, the backend is mostly not. During the course of Plasma 5.x development, Aaron had a really great idea (inspired by his newfound love of Erlang) of creating a more mature infrastructure for KRunner that would (among other things) allow it never to block the UI while calculating the results. Unfortunately, this never got integrated into KRunner UI for various reasons.

KWayland joined KDE Frameworks

Filed under
KDE

The current release 5.22 of KDE Frameworks gained a new framework: KWayland. So far KWayland got released together with Plasma. KWayland entered as tier 1/integration and is only available on Linux (and other Linux-like systems).

For us working on the Wayland stack in Plasma and KDE this is a very important step. Now we can use KWayland also in other frameworks. Also with KWayland in frameworks we expose it to a larger audience. We hope that it is a useful framework for anyone using Wayland with Qt. It’s not a replacement for QtWayland, rather an addition and way more flexible by being closer to the Wayland API.

  • Some new Breeze app icons in Frameworks 5.22

    Some icons I made, you can find them in KDE Frameworks 5.22

    The QOwnNotes icon became the official one. Give to this app a try, it’s super.

  • The initiation

    What will I be doing you ask? Well, as some people know Krita on Mac OS X is not quite there yet. Some of the new cool functionality added to Krita 3.0 is forcefully omitted from the OS X release. Deep down in the depths of Krita painting we paint decorations using Qt's kindly provided QPainter class. This class allows us to make pretty lines and shapes very easily, and is perfectly suited to drawing all of the overlay functionality (such as grids, cursors, guides, etc.). What could possibly go wrong there? Well, even though we are grateful to have such easy rendering functionality, the backend of those functions haven't exactly kept up with the times.

  • QtCon Call for Papers Extended!

    What have you been working on lately that you’d like to share at a QtCon talk? The Qt Community of developers wants to hear from you! Submit your proposal by Friday and get a chance to contribute to this one-off, unique Event in Berlin.

  • Care to help test Plasma 5.6.4?
  • Compiling all of Qt5, KF5, Plasma5, kdepim5, apps...

    I see a very high value in compiling my own Qt, and on top of it all the KDE-made software that I use. This makes it very easy to fix bugs and add improvements to the software I use on a day to day basis. Nowadays I think many developers use distro packages for Qt or KF5 or even the whole environment except for the one app they're working on, but in my opinion this leads to "silo" thinking, with workarounds in upper layers rather than fixing issues at the right place.

    So, here's a working and easy recipe for compiling all the Qt-based software you use.

FOSS Events: LCA and systemd.conf

  • 5 great linux.conf.au talks (that aren't about Linux)
    linux.conf.au, otherwise known as LCA, is one of the world's longest-running open source events. LCA has been held in a different city around Australia and New Zealand almost every year since 1999. Despite the name, linux.conf.au is a generalist open source conference. LCA hasn't been just about Linux for a long time. Rather, the conference focuses on everything to do with open source: the software, hardware, and network protocols that underly it. LCA also has a strong track on free and open culture, exploring how open source interacts with science, government, and the law.
  • FINAL REMINDER! systemd.conf 2016 CfP Ends on Monday!
    Please note that the systemd.conf 2016 Call for Participation ends on Monday, on Aug. 1st! Please send in your talk proposal by then! We’ve already got a good number of excellent submissions, but we are very interested in yours, too!
