KDE 4.0 release

KDE 4.0

KDE; Salah satu linux desktop environtment terpopuler merilis versi stable 4.0 nya, tampil dengan librari multimedia yang lebih komplit, support hardware yang lebih baik, serta tampilan desktop yang lebih ciamik 🙂

KDE 4.0 tampil dengan desktop manager baru yang diberi nama “Dolphin”, yang mirip dengan MAC OS file manager di padu dengan theme oxygen serta icon Apple yang glossy, membuat KDE 4.0 patut dan layak dicoba 🙂

Di website resminya KDE ditulis :

The KDE 4 Libraries have seen major improvements in almost all areas. The Phonon multimedia framework provides platform independent multimedia support to all KDE applications, the Solid hardware integration framework makes interacting with (removable) devices easier and provides tools for better power management.

The KDE 4 Desktop has gained some major new capabilities. The Plasma desktop shell offers a new desktop interface, including panel, menu and widgets on the desktop as well as a dashboard function. KWin, the KDE Window manager, now supports advanced graphical effects to ease interaction with your windows.

Lots of KDE Applications have seen improvements as well. Visual updates through vector-based artwork, changes in the underlying libraries, user interface enhancements, new features, even new applications — you name it, KDE 4.0 has it. Okular, the new document viewer and Dolphin, the new file manager are only two applications that leverage KDE 4.0’s new technologies.

The Oxygen Artwork team provides a breath of fresh air on the desktop. Nearly all the user-visible parts of the KDE desktop and applications have been given a facelift. Beauty and consistency are two of the basic concepts behind Oxygen.
