KDE Software Compilation 4.4-beta1 Out Now: Codename "Kompilation"
KDE Ships First Preview of New 4.4
Desktop, Applications and Development Platform
December 3rd, 2009. Today, KDE has released a first preview the KDE Software
Compilation (KDE SC), 4.4 Beta1 The first beta version of KDE SC 4.4 provides a
preview and base for helping to stabilize the next version of the KDE Desktop,
Applications and Development Platform.
The list of changes this time around is especially long. Important changes can be
observed all over the place:
The Nepomuk Semantic Search framework has made leaps: A new storage backend makes it
a lot faster, new user interfaces to interact with the Nepomuk database are first
delivered with KDE 4.4.0 and a timeline view of your files makes finding files used
in the past easier.
The Plasma Desktop has been further polished. Many user interface elements have
received attention by developers and designers. The new widget explorer provides a
richer experience for managing desktop widgets. Plasma widgets can now be shared with
other users over the network and the handling of storage devices in the desktop shell
has been streamlined. Also, in 4.4 Plasma's little sibling, the Netbook shell debuts
as a technology preview.
New applications on the horizon range from Blogilo, a rich-client blogging tool to
Cantor and Rocs, two scientific applications for advanced math and graph theory
needs. Many other applications, such as the Gwenview image viewer and the Dolpin file
manager have been further improved.
The KDE Development Platform adds the new KAuth authorization framework for easy and
secure privilege escalation, printing of odd and even pages, scanner support for the
Windows platform and the first pieces of integration of the popular webkit rendering
These are only some of the changes one can expect from the new KDE Software
Compilation 4.4, there is also a longer list of the changes:
