Submission + - KDevelop 4.0 Released (

HatofPig writes: "The KDevelop Hackers are proud and happy to announce that KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as a stable release. The first stable release since KDE 3.5, KDevelop 4.0 comes with lots of features already, even though some things had to be dropped compared to the 3.5 series due to time constraints. In particular we have focused on building an excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages halfheartedly. Of course it is still possible to add support for more languages to KDevelop and we are confident that it is actually easier than before: the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that is released alongside KDevelop 4.0. Lots of screenshots here!"

Submission + - Good uses for personal web hosting? 1

HatofPig writes: "Like many people, I've purchased a domain name with my name in it, but don't have the time or inclination to start a blog, or maintain a website there (at least not yet). While I've used my webspace for a few hobby projects, and the occasional file hosting, there are several hundred gigabytes just sitting there unused and I find it hard to justify renewing my yearly contract when it comes up again, unless I find a use for it. I'd donate some of it to a mirroring service, but shared-server hosting plans aren't really good for that sort of thing. That said, I'm sure there are lots of useful things that I could use my webspace for, if I had an imagination. Something like a self-hosted Dropbox alternative would be a fantastic use, if it existed. What interesting things do Slashdotters use their personal webspace for? How should any self-respecting geek make use of their webhosting plan and domain name?"
