  • Last week in QtGStreamer – a recap (and an overview of GStreamer)

    This is inspired by the ‘Last week in Krita’ and ‘Last week in KOffice’ series. Boud, the author of these series, mentioned that this is a nice way to “keep everyone who is interested, developers, contributors, users — everyone — up to date on what is happening in the […] community.” I do not promise […]

  • Poll results

    People have spoken, results are in and Rex Dieter is already working on the patches. The KDE Games collection now has “Naval Battle” and “KSnakeDuel”, filling in for “KBattleship” and “KTron”. Results can be seen here and here.

  • Renaming KBattleShip and KTron

    As you all know, KDE is a project that encourages as much cooperation with upstream as possible. So if a distro has a reasonable request we generally try to find a way to make life easier for them, as this will ultimately benefit all KDE users when they migrate between different environments. So it is […]

  • Embedded Linux Conference Europe and GStreamer Conference

There were a lot of talks dealing with user interface and multimedia issues, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out several presenters mentioning Qt, usually […]

  • QtGStreamer – an introduction

    For the past couple of weeks I have been working on a very cool project, one started and lead by one of our brilliant KDE hackers-that-came-from-GSoC, George Kiagiadakis (gkiagia). I remember that the project got my attention when it was first announced. But I was very busy at that time, and could only follow it […]

  • Collabora Multimedia

    For the past 6 years I have been working on several open source projects as a volunteer. But it has been difficult to find the time to continue to do so on a regular basis after my son was born, in August 2009. There are only 24 hours in a day, and these are not […]

  • Updates on Linux Educacional

    Linux Educacional (LE) is a distro packaged by the SEED team at the Ministry of Education in Brazil. I posted about the previous versions already, you can find more info on the archives here and here. The LE team has been working on the 2011 version for a while. Previous releases used KDE 3.5, and […]

  • Blog v3

    Well, the last few months have been very busy. And I realized I have not blogged since Akademy. Of course, this is the perfect excuse to change blog hosts again 🙂 Livejournal has been good, but ultimately the amount of spam on comments is just too much, even for a semi-alive blog like mine. So […]
