KDE and Akademy

  • KDE Has Created Shashlik, A Way To Install Android Apps On Linux
    As you may know, KDE has created Shashlik, an emulator that permits the installation of Android apps on Linux systems. While Android is still Linux because they share the Linux kernel, Google’s OS has its own libraries and services while Linux uses the libraries and services brought by GNU.
  • Passing the Torch
    I hereby want to announce an open call to find a new maintainer for KDE’s speech recognition efforts.
  • Kubuntu Paddleboard Club
  • Akademy 2015 & Kate
    I didn’t do that much work on Kate, I mostly did small bugfixes for the applications bundled with the KDE Applications releases regarding their HiDPI support, finally no Konsole that can’t redraw correctly on scrolling on a HiDPI screen with scaling activated!
  • It’s the final countdown
  • Akademy 2015 coming to an end
    During the BoF days from Monday to Thursday, a great many tiny videos were shot of many of the attendees by Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen. These have been edited and cut up and turned into a video explaining, very shortly, what KDE really is. Being a community of people contributing to the development of software, the conclusion is straight forward. See the unsurprising conclusion in the video entitled What is KDE? (webm, mp4, vimeo), created as a tribute to the KDE community and all the amazing people in it.

  • Android for Work Gets Support from Major U.S. Carriers
    Earlier this year, we were reporting on one of the biggest security holes ever affecting Android. In fact, PaloAlto networks had found that that security breach affected almost 50 percent of Android devices, making them vulnerable to an attack that can swap out a user's pre-installed app with malware that can round up sensitive data. The fact is, concerns about security and other issues have made some enterprises wary of letting users standardize on Android devices.

  • OnePlus 2 Review Roundup: Solid Android Smartphone And Fantastic Tag Price
    The OnePlus 2 will not become available in the U.S. and Europe until Aug. 11, but the first reviews of the Chinese startup's second flagship smartphone are already in, and the verdict is a resounding thumbs up from most people who were lucky enough to be given a preview build. When it comes to the OnePlus 2's design, reviewers agree that the device has a solid, comfortable build thanks to the textured sandstone panel on the back and the slight convex shape that curves right into the hands, while still evoking that premium feel with the aluminum frame holding up the device.
