  • [Utilizing Vulkan Within Qt]
  • The last weekend on Earth

    In the last two months, tech developers, helped by students from India in order to the Google Summer of Code, worked hard, together with the editing team, on new features and fuctions that we wanted to implement in the site. So, tech developers decided to release WikiToLearn 0.7 on saturday April 09. But something went wrong, and what would have to be an ordinary saturday of releasing became a hellish saturday.

  • Audio Volume improvements in Plasma 5.7

    Plasma 5.4 introduced plasma-pa (new audio volume applet and KCM) to replace KMix, however it was missing few important features in the initial release. Unfortunately, there was no progress after that.

  • Vote Loony to Add K to the Welsh Language
  • Horde of Cuteness fundraiser
  • Cross-compiling Krita using MXE

    So, using MXE, I built Qt and most dependencies. Still missing are Vc, OpenColorIO, GSL, Poppler-qt5 and openjpeg. I also needed to remove some of the hacks we did to make Krita compile with MSVC: we had added a couple of dummy header files to provide things like nothl and friends (these days superseded by QtEndian). A 3rd-party library we embed, xcftools, had its own equivalent of that stuff. But apart from that...

  • Interview with Esfenodon

    I’m always searching for the way to use as much open source software as possible at University. Maybe it was as simple as searching google for it. Krita software, hmmm, interesting, let’s give it a try. Maybe the Krita name was familiar to me because some time ago I read about a collection of open source tools for audiovisual creativity.

  • How do you use Grantlee?

    It is also used in the Cutelyst web framework for generating html, templated emails and any other use-cases users of that framework have.

    There is also rather advanced Grantlee integration available in KDevelop for new class generation, using the same principles I blogged about some years ago.

    Ex-Kubuntu maintainer Jonathan Riddell has announced the upgrade of the KDE Neon base packages from Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) to the upcoming Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) branch.

    The developer introduced the KDE Neon project to the Linux community at the end of January, during the FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting) 2016 event, which was welcomed in particular by those who love having the latest KDE technologies on top of an Ubuntu Linux base.

  • Qt 5.7 Beta Is In Sight

    Qt 5.7 continues moving along and due to the concurrent release work with the much-delayed Qt 5.6 that finally shipped in March, the Qt 5.7 beta is already imminent.

    The Qt Company today uploaded Qt 5.7 beta packages for Windows, Linux, Mac, and then the source packages. These Qt 5.7.0 beta packages will be promoted to being the official beta in a few days time if no serious bugs are discovered by early testers.

  • Kolab Systems AG and Collabora's CloudSuite

    The chemistry created by the Kolab Systems-Collabora Productivity partnership enabled CloudSuite, the first 100% open-source, enterprise-grade cloud office suite. Kolab Systems' contribution is its Kolab open-source groupware and collaboration framework; Collabora Productivity is the architect behind LibreOffice Online, the cloud-based office productivity suite. The integration of CloudSuite into Kolab allows users to work on documents simultaneously using a full-featured on-line office suite.

KTorrent KF5 release

KDE

KTorrent for KF5 is available officially, please spread the news.

One known issue that struck many people is downloading to ntfs partition being slow even on ssd (!) and causing ui unresponsiveness (the root cause is inside ntfs driver). In the next release i will introduce an autodetection of ntfs and suggestion to download to a non-ntfs partition with moving files to ntfs after download finishes.

KDE neon upgrades to 16.04LTS

Filed under
KDE

KDE neon is a package archive of KDE software built on a stable foundation. We use Ubuntu because it’s good technology that we’re familiar with and which provides a Long Term Support foundation we can use. When we started the only practical version to use at the start was 15.10 so our packages have been built using that. But with 16.04LTS due out next week it’s time to move to a solid foundation where we expect to stay for the next couple of years.

That Time of the Cycle

Filed under
KDE

With Plasma 5.6 long out the door, it’s time for the traditional changing of the wallpapers! Or at least, showing what the next wallpaper will be.

With Plasma 5.7 we won’t be venturing too far from where we are in 5.6. As I mentioned in a previous post about wallpapers we have been paying attention to the feedback, trying to find something that hit the right balance. The 5.6 the wallpaper seemed to hit that mark, so you’ll see fewer dramatic swings in the wallpaper direction; we’re goanna stick with what works for a while.

  • Android Wear: Should Manufacturers be Given More Freedom?
    In the world of Android, we’ve become accustomed to the myriad of different brands and manufacturers putting their own twist on Android. While this has caused some friction in some circles, it has given certain devices a unique sense of identity and now that most of these skins have been toned down somewhat, they often add a little more value, too. The case is no more clear than it is with Android tablets, stock Android might be just fine and dandy for a lot of users on smartphones, but on tablets it can feel stark and limited. The added features from the likes of Samsung and Sony often make an Android tablet a hell of a lot more useful out of the box, but in the world of Android smartwatches, there’s none of this. The only thing that device manufacturers can realistically change with their Android Wear watches is the different watch faces they include and include some different apps. Is it about time that this changed?
  • $99 Superdock turns Android phones into laptops — but why?
    Stop me if you've heard this idea before: Imagine turning your smartphone into a laptop just by plugging it into a laptop "shell." Yeah... it's not a new idea and yet Superbook, a product that promises to turn your Android phone into a laptop, has already smashed its Kickstarter campaign goal of $50,000 with more than $398,000 pledged as of this writing and 28 days left to go.
  • BlackBerry Hamburg Android phone release date soon, FCC now
    This week the folks at BlackBerry have had their latest Android device revealed by the FCC. Re-revealed, we might say, as the device was first leaked several weeks ago with its partner, both BlackBerry smartphones running Android. This device is being shown by the FCC this week with model name STH100-2 (RJD211LW) with GSM quad-band, UMTS penta-band, and LTE deca-band connectivity technology inside. We will very likely see this device released inside the United States very soon.
  • This smart shell can turn your Android smartphone into a complete laptop
    A US-based startup has launched a smart laptop shell that turns your Android smartphone into a complete laptop -- making it more convenient and affordable for people in developing countries like India and South Africa to carry their office in their pocket, literally. The shell, called Superbook by Andromium, makes an Android smartphone output look very much like a desktop environment. It is essentially a "dumb terminal"-- a notebook without a processor but with a keyboard, battery, trackpad and display, TreeHugger reported on Saturday.

  • Nokia set to make a comeback with two Android devices by the end of year
    Finnish telecommunications giant Nokia is all set to make a smartphone comeback with two new Android 7.0 Nougat devices by the end of this year, a media report said on Saturday. The two unnamed devices will have premium metal designs complete with IP68 certification, which means they will be as water resistant as Samsung's Galaxy S7, The Inquirer reported. The smartphones may come up with 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch QHD screens, along with fingerprint scanner and "innovations" in the camera, the report noted.
  • Cyanogen Inc. reportedly fires OS development arm, switches to apps
    Cyanogen Inc. seems to be in trouble. A report from Android Police cites "several sources" that say the three-year-old Android software house will be laying off 20 percent of its workforce. One source said the company would "pivot" to "apps" and away from OS development.
