First, a little bit of history
It seems that was yesterday when a year ago in the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Victor sent a file to me through Bluetooth and kdebluetooth saved it in a hidden folder, the file is still there “~/.kbluetooth4/Vídeo003.3gp”. That fact is what made me decide to use my spare time working on kdebluetooth.

BlueDevil is a set of components, which integrates bluetooth within the KDE SC, for example adding a system preference module (KCM), or allowing to browse the files in a cell phone from you favorite file browser.
Continued to work on Photoshop ( PS in text further) brush presets support in Krita. I was exploring what features we miss and I started to implement some of them. I implemented parsing of the brush and tip dynamics and brush properties serializing so far. Parsing of the presets is complicated as it can be somehow context related.
Ages ago, in the long-forgotten days of 2008, there was Amarok 1.4. And it was good. Then KDE4 came along and Amarok was rewritten, reshaped, becoming something... different. Something unsettling. Something not altogether pleasant.

Today the reformed K3b team within the KDE Community is proud to release the final 2.0 of the premier disk recording application, codenamed “Komeback”. Although pre-release versions have already enjoyed widespread adoption, we'd like to recap some of the highlights of this release.
K3b 2.0 marks the last milestone in the effort to port one of the most popular disk recording applications to KDE's current Platform 4.
hanks to the pledge we did long time ago and thanks to the community member, Silvio Grosso, who made major donation, I’m working on Krita for next ~12 weeks full-time. The Krita community and me prepared Action Plan II. It’s something like Google Summer Of Code proposal but with much more targets. I have tasks per week, not one big target like Summer Of Code projects.
First two weeks of the plan are devoted to the support of the Photoshop brushes. I worked on it already in Action Plan I, I added support of the brush masks (bitmaps) from the file format, but there are still presets saved in the ABR format and we want to support them.
