h-online.com: KDE developer Jonathan Riddell has announced that the Rekonq web browser has now reached version 1.0 and is available to download.
phoronix.com: KDE 4.9 will be released in August and overall it feels more responsive and faster during desktop use than its predecessors.
datamation.com: KDE 4.9 is a mature release, so you wouldn't expect major renovations. However, to judge from the second release candidate (technically, the 4.8.97 release), that expectation is no more than half correct.
jaysonrowe.blogspot: I left KDE back in the early KDE4 days. I had always been a KDE user since first using Linux. The other day I was tinkering around and decided to try KDE on Fedora.
thevarguy.com: With the plethora of open source desktop environments available at the moment, it’s hard to keep track of all the different features sets. And since KDE, which has recently become my interface of choice, arguably enjoys less media love than alternatives such as GNOME and Unity, it seems only fair to highlight some of the feature changes in its next upcoming release.
h-online.com: KDE contributor and OpenSUSE community manager Jos Poortvliet has written a blog posting on the KDE news site, explaining the KDE project's stance on the future of Qt.
datamation.com: Activities are the defining feature of the KDE 4 release series. Yet, despite their potential, Activities remain poorly understood. Here is my wish list of improvements that would help Activities to come into their own:
freesoftwaremagazine.com: One of the first things that newcomers to GNU/Linux learn to do is to bypass big Start menus and blank screens (like Fluxbox) and use ALT+F2 to launch an application by simply typing in its name.
dot.kde.org: Today KDE released the first Release Candidate for the 4.9 versions of Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform.
phoronix.com: Peter Penz, the main developer of the Dolphin file manager for the KDE desktop and a K Desktop user since KDE v1.2, is calling it quits after contributing to KDE for more than the past half-decade.
linux-magazine.com: Activities are both KDE's most talked-about and least understood features. Whenever I enthuse over them, I am invariably greeted with so much bafflement that I suspect that they are also KDE's least used features.
linuxjournal.com: Why would you spend a few hundred dollars on a device that is little more than a smartphone (with a bigger screen, without the phone)?
dot.kde.org: Today KDE released the second beta for its renewed Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform.
datamation.com: Over the last fourteen months, discontent with Unity and the GNOME 3 series of releases have sent GNOME users galloping in all directions in their search for alternatives.
kde.org: Today KDE released updates for its Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform. These updates are the fourth in a series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.8 series.
