Mandriva has decided to help porting k3b, the leading and award-winning KDE burning software, to Qt4. 2 engineers of our KDE team are working together with Sebastian Trueg, the lead developer of this project, so that new version can be released sooner and hopefully for 2009 Spring release. Linux users will finally be able to make k3b use the full power of the KDE4 platform through Solid, Phonon and all the Plasma environment.Boiko is one of our 2 engineers working at the moment on this port.
