First Talks for conf.kde.in, Registration Open

KDE News - Mié, 01/15/2014 - 10:58

conf.kde.in was announced in November, to take place February 21 – 23, 2014 in Gandhinagar, India. This three-day conference, the biggest KDE event in India, will bring together Qt developers, KDE contributors, open source enthusiasts and users from all across the nation. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn, share, contribute, innovate and create around Qt and KDE technology.

conf.kde.in is an excellent platform for you to learn about FOSS and start contributing to it. You will learn about KDE technology and community and how to participate, paving the way for future participation in programs like Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Season of KDE. Last year, KDE was the largest participating organization in GSoC with 60 students selected. The conference sessions will range from beginner to advanced level, to facilitate all kinds of participants.

Talks

There will be a vibrant gamut of talks at the event; with a variety of technical as well as non technical talks covered by members of the KDE community from the extremes of India as well as the world. Be a witness to this cultural and intellectual infusion of ideas and experiences, of knowledge and guidance; by people from different walks of life, all with a common passion - open source and KDE; ready to ignite the same passion in you through their words and their minds.

Here are some of the talks currently scheduled for this event:

Attending the conference will give you the opportunity to meet seasoned open source contributors, discuss with them, exchange ideas with them, learn from them and also teach them something new.

Many of these contributors work for great companies (which themselves are involved in various open source projects) inluding Mozilla, SUSE, Red Hat, Blue Systems, ThoughtWorks, KDAB, Digia. Also you will find that many of these contributors were students until recently.

Wondering what KDE/Qt is?

KDE is one of the largest international free software communities. It has an integrated set of cross-platform applications designed to run on GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows, and Apple OS X systems. KDE is known for its Plasma Workspace, an environment provided as the default working environment on many Linux distributions, such as Kubuntu, Pardus, and openSUSE.

To find more information about KDE, please visit kde.org.

Qt is a cross-platform application framework that is widely used for developing application software with a graphical user interface (GUI) and also used for developing non-GUI programs such as command-line tools and consoles for servers. Qt is used in Adobe Photoshop Elements, Skype, VLC media player, VirtualBox, Dassault DraftSight and Mathematica, and by the European Space Agency, DreamWorks, Google, HP, KDE, Lucasfilm, Autodesk Maya, The Foundry's Nuke, Panasonic, Philips, Blackberry applications, Samsung, Siemens, Volvo, Walt Disney, Animation Studios and Research In Motion. Qt runs on multiple platforms which include Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Embedded Linux, Blackberry 10, Android, Sailfish and Ubuntu Phone OS.

Frameworks 5 Tech Preview

KDE News - Mar, 01/07/2014 - 11:00

The KDE Community is proud to announce a Tech Preview of KDE Frameworks 5. Frameworks 5 is the result of almost three years of work to modularize, review and port the set of libraries previously known as KDElibs or KDE Platform 4 into a set of Qt Addons, separate libraries with well-defined dependencies and abilities, ready for Qt 5. This gives the Qt ecosystem a powerful set of drop-in libraries providing additional functionality for a wide variety of tasks and platforms, based on over 15 years of KDE experience in building applications. Today, all the Frameworks are available in Tech Preview mode; a final release is planned for the first half of 2014. Some Tech Preview addons (notably KArchive and Threadweaver) are more mature than others at this time.

What is Frameworks 5?

The KDE libraries are currently the common code base for (almost) all KDE applications. They provide high-level functionality such as toolbars and menus, spell checking and file access. Currently, 'kdelibs' is distributed as a single set of interconnected libraries. Through KDE Frameworks efforts, these libraries have been methodically reworked into a set of independent, cross platform classes that will be readily available to all Qt developers.

The KDE Frameworks—designed as drop-in Qt Addon libraries—will enrich Qt as a development environment with functions that simplify, accelerate and reduce the cost of Qt development. Frameworks eliminate the need to reinvent key functions.

The transition from Platform to Frameworks has been underway for almost three years and is being implemented by a team of about 20 (paid and volunteer) developers and actively supported by four companies. Frameworks 5 consists of 57 libraries: 19 independent Qt addons not requiring any dependencies; 9 that require libraries which themselves are independent; and 29 with more significant dependency chains. Frameworks are developed following the Frameworks Policies, in a vendor neutral, open process.

This KDE News article has more background on Frameworks 5.

Available today

The tech preview made available today contains all 57 libraries that are part of Frameworks 5. Of these, two have a maturity level that shows the direction of Frameworks: ThreadWeaver and KArchive. Developers are invited to take all of the libraries for a spin and provide feedback (and patches) to help bring them to the same level of maturity.

KArchive offers support for many popular compression codecs in a self-contained, featureful and easy-to-use file archiving and extracting library. Just feed it files; there's no need to reinvent an archiving function in your Qt-based application! ThreadWeaver offers a high-level API to manage threads using job- and queue-based interfaces. It allows easy scheduling of thread execution by specifying dependencies between the threads and executing them while satisfying these dependencies, greatly simplifying the use of multiple threads. These are available for production use now.


The KDE Frameworks and their dependencies (overview is a work in progress)

There is a full list of the Frameworks; tarballs with the current code can be downloaded. Binaries are available as well.

The team is currently working on providing a detailed listing of all Frameworks and third party libraries at inqlude.org, the curated archive of Qt libraries. Each entry includes a dependency tree view. Dependency diagrams can also be found here.

Working towards a final release

The team will do monthly releases with a beta planned for the first week of April and a final release in the beginning of June.

Plans for this period include tidying up the infrastructure, integration with QMake and pkg-config for non-CMake users, getting CMake contributions upstream, and a final round of API cleanups and reviews. Frameworks 5 will be open for API changes until the beta in April.

Those interested in following progress can check out the git repositories, follow the discussions on the KDE Frameworks Development mailing list and contribute patches through review board. Policies and the current state of the project and plans are available at the Frameworks wiki. Real-time discussions take place on the #kde-devel IRC channel on freenode.net.
