KDE Telepathy is a suite of applications which together form an instant-messaging client allowing you to talk on Jabber, Gmail, Facebookm, MSN and much more. KDE Telepathy stands out from previous instant messaging clients by being able to integrate into the KDE workspace and plasma, as well as being able to be used like a traditional IM application.

We are proud to announce the immediate release of Kdenlive 0.8.2. We encourage all users to upgrade.
For this release, we did put a lot of energy into bug fixing and stability (more than 140 issues solved) to bring you a better editing experience. We have solved a lot of project corruption issues, and the introduction of the automatic backup feature means you should hopefully enjoy Kdenlive better than ever!
Among the features improvements, the proxy clips (clips replacing the original ones when editing a format that is too slow to edit, for example AVCHD) should work fine now, HDMI capture should also be improved (feedback welcome) and some GUI multi threading should make operations a bit smoother.

Before anything, this article is for those using KDE and GNOME and start feeling the need for more, or something else. This is not a trolling article (we hate that), nor is a rant against the two DEs. We respect the freedom of choice, and the Open Source world is all about freedom of choice. With this article we only want to show you what other options you have, the pluses and the minuses, with no bias whatsoever. We'll go less than technical with this article, and we hope we'll widen your perspective and help you use something that's really fit for your needs.

I want to thank all users who tested our beta version and release candidates and ensured by that a regression free update. I am very glad on how smooth this major transition of the compositor seems to work according to the very low number of bug reports in this cycle.
On Mesa enabled desktop systems there is also the possibility to go a step further and leave GLX completely behind by compiling KWin for OpenGL ES/EGL only.

This weekend at the Desktop Summit in Berlin, plans were presented by Martin Gräßlin, the maintainer of the KWin compositing window manager, for supporting the Wayland Display Server as an alternative to KDE being limited to X11. For early adopters and those using Plasma Active, KDE on Wayland should become a reality in the 2012 calendar year.

Good news for all users that don’t use Linux but still want to run Krita. In the last week lots of progress has been made towards getting Krita to run on Windows and Mac OS X. The Windows work was work was done by stuartmd who is working for KO GmbH. The screenshot below shows current git master running on Windows. The native windows look is a bit ugly, but can of course be changed to Oxygen.

It’s not easy to put up a list of “best” applications which do something, however there are some highlights in each category which really deserve to be mentioned. In this article I will overview 20 KDE applications which I believe are best in their niche, one application from each important category, in no particular order.

Yesterday Apple announced their new internet service called iCloud. They finally have features which are essential for people who live in a connected world and have more than one device. I can't help myself but to compare this features with the stuff we are doing in KDE with the ownCloud project since last year.
