openSUSE 10.3 Home Stretch & KDE Four Live 0.4.1

All efforts these days concentrate on openSUSE 10.3, the one CD installation medias and Live CD installer testing: the release candidate is planned for Thursday. The German box version is already listed and can be pre-ordered (eg SUSE Shop, Amazon.de). It will include a total of 16GB software for 32 and 64bit on two dual-layer DVDs this time!

openSUSE 10.3 and KDE 4.0

Did anyone miss a news splash these days about openSUSE 10.3 not shipping KDE 4.0 as default KDE desktop like some other distro? Or maybe not as we have not been telling everyone the last half year that we would. No, we didn't have a crystal ball but experience with our long time existing KDE4 packages. "So much for" knowing what we're doing. ;-)

sysinfo:/ Improved

Other distributions certainly like to pick up stuff that Novell/SUSE are developing (and have been using for long). Recent examples include Ubuntu and Mandriva starting to integrate AppArmor or Oracle porting YaST to their Enterprise Linux and RHEL.

Kickoff Goes KDE 4

Porting of Kickoff to KDE 4 has started: the first step is trying to make it work with the Kicker remains. Some code is still disabled but you can already search/browse applications and start them:

If you want to help to get rid of KDE3isms, the code is in /home/kde/branches/work/kickoff_kde4-port/ - search for FIXME. :-)

openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 6 Remarks

Yesterday openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 6 has been released (major changes). As Coolo mentioned this is the first alpha release which feels really alpha due to the package management refactoring.

openSUSE News Goes Live

Today one of my hack week projects went online: openSUSE News. Actually I have been working on it together with Robert Lihm already before and finished it only after. :-)

KDE TextCompletion History Editor

Did you ever feel bothered by a wrong suggestion of the text completion after having entered a typo in an application name, web page url or some web form entry before? So did I regularly and the only GUI-way to "correct" it until now was to clear all entries via the context menu's "Clear History". Not really a satisfying solution. :-)

The Return of kdedevelopers.org

The missed kdedevelopers.org site is back! Thanks go to Ian Geiser for founding and hosting it until recently. Starting this week it's hosted on a KDE e.V. server and administered by the KDE sysadmins. All old content except the theme has been transferred. The old (new account and password reminder notifications) and most known bugs of the new setup are fixed meanwhile. :-)
