KDE 4.0 Beta 1 Released 249

dbhost writes "Along with this morning's cup of coffee and log reviews, I discovered that the KDE team is moving forward with a long awaited beta release of KDE 4.0 beta release of KDE 4.0. The most interesting item I found in the notes is that the file manager in KDE is being separated from Konqueror into a component called Dolphin. Also, according to the announcement, konsole has been treated to a number of improvements such as split view, and history highlighting."

Submission + - 2nd Open Discussion Day this May 19th

Ploum writes: "Like announced by Peter Saint-Andre, president of the Jabber Software Fundation, May 19th will be the 2nd Open Discussion Day. For one day, participants will use only open protocols (like SIP, Jabber, Google Talk) and refuse to send or receive files in a closed format.

Warn your contacts on your closed networks or, better, help them to create a open account on an open network and enjoy the openness.

The first Open Discussion Day was held in 2006 and was a success. Popular Jabber servers like amessage.de or fritalk.com closed their MSN/ICQ/AOL gateways for one day. The announcement was translated in more than 10 languages and it was reported that a lot of users definitively dropped MSN/ICQ/AOL to use Jabber."
