A first look at KDE 4 beta 2A first look at KDE 4 beta 2

,----[ Quote ]
| This beta may not be the end result yet, but there has definitely been a lot 
| of progress since the last one. For the first time I have been able to stop 
| writing about individual features within KDE 4 and start to talk about the 
| level of integration, and general feel of the system to get an impression of 
| how KDE 4.0 will feel like to use. With a few exceptions (like Plasma), KDE 
| is now in a feature freeze which means that this build somewhat reflects the 
| final product more than previous alpha and beta releases have.      


KDE 4 Screencast: Plasma and KGet interaction

,----[ Quote ]
| While the KDE 4.0 release date was shifted the development behind the scenes 
| goes on. Recently Javier Goday submitted patches to connect Plasma with the 
| KDE download application KGet. He made two screencasts showing how KGet can 
| use Plasma for its needs.

Ready for a new K: an inside look at KDE 4.0

| When I see how fast new contributors get productive,
| fixing bugs and asking questions on mailing lists - I know it’s working.
| It makes me feel stupid. 


KDE 4.0: revolution or hype?

,----[ Quote ]
| "4.0 will probably not be the revolution, and we won't take over the world in 
| one day," he said. "We will, however, increase the profile and the market 
| share of the free desktop significantly over the KDE4 cycle. An important 
| point one needs to remember is that KDE 4.0 is only the beginning. It'll be 
| the first desktop to be exposed to the user, and it's the base for our work 
| for the next, say, five years."
