Kerry Beagle Desktop Search

[image:1819 align=right] The KDE desktop of SUSE Linux 10.1 (and the future enterprise products built on it) will contain a KDE frontend for Beagle called Kerry. For this Beagle has been splitted into non-GUI and GUI parts, some backends are now in sub-packages (Evolution, Firefox) and the libbeagle API has been improved in parts. Besides generic file indexing Beagle already contains backends written by Debajyoti Bera and others for KMail, Kopete and Konqueror's web history cache.

Novell/SUSE Represented in KDE's Technical Working Group

The KDE project has elected its first Technical Working Group. Three Novell/SUSE employees are among the seven elected members (the others either didn't get elected, are busy with KDE e.V. board work or didn't candidate ;-) ). It seems you can still surprise some people with Novell/SUSE's continued strong KDE support hence this short note.

Bugzilla Voting for SUSE Linux 10.1

A bit too silent in my opinion voting within Novell's Bugzilla was enabled: you can now vote for bug reports and enhancement requests which are filed against the "SUSE Linux 10.1" product.

KDE 3.5.1 Packages for SUSE Linux 10.0

KDE 3.5.1 packages for SUSE Linux 10.0 are now available which include fixes for the worst KDE 3.5.1 regressions. They will also appear at the usual YaST source. These packages are unsupported and mostly untested: kdelibs3-devel has a known wrong dependency which can be safely ignored and will be removed in the next revision.

A KDE View on SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 4

With SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 4 being announced let me list some KDE-related interesting news of it: it includes KDE 3.5 with several packages updated to last weekend's KDE 3.5 branch. The Qt 4 package's version is 4.1 release candidate 1. Digikam 0.8 and Taskjuggler 2.2 releases are of course not missing. 10.1 Alpha 4 includes a recent snapshot of KOffice trunk if you want to test eg Krita.

The Importance of KDE 3.5

KDE 3.5 has been released (press quote: "The newest version of KDE will have users happy that vendors have recently decided to keep supporting it"), the really last feature release in the until now three and a half years successful KDE 3 series. KDE 3.5.x will be the versions most users will use for likely more than a year (time until KDE 4 release + time until distributions pick it up + time until users upgrade).
