KDE Software Compilation 4.4 RC1 Codename “Cornelius” released
KDE has it’s own powerful window manager, KWin. It’s full of features, and two new ones I mention here:
Now you can group windows to same frame, thus making them available in tabs, I find this useful when testing pages with several browsers, for example.
B2 has love
I finally added the option to toggle on and off the auto-move of titlebar tab in B2 decoration, this decoration has come along a long time without new features (KDE 2?) so it was about time!. (:
It’s not perfect addition though, auto-move works only without composition, that is, effects and stuff, as there seems to be no any easy way to find out if titlebar is covered (obscured) when composition is used.
Nepomuk is not new, but until this version, I hadn’t really touched it, now it is finally well integrated, works, and what important, uses resources moderately compared to its past (YMMV). Maybe it’s finally time to start using Nepomuk search instead of
grep -r. (:
What else? Oh, there’s plenty of things I should mention, including the always magnificient Plasma development, new Amarok releases (not KDE SC related) and many more, but I’ll leave that to others this time.
Back to scratch my itch…
