KDE 3.2.0이 릴리즈되었습니다. 릴리즈 공지문은 다음과 같습니다. (좀 깁니다.)

The KDE Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of KDE 3.2, the third major release of the award-winning KDE3 desktop platform. KDE 3.2 is the result of a combined year-long effort by hundreds of individuals and corporations from around the globe. This diverse team has been working successfully together since 1997 to make KDE the leading Open Source desktop software for Linux and UNIX.

As with previous KDE releases, version 3.2 provides an integrated desktop and a comprehensive set of applications that combine to create an environment that is usable for a wide variety of tasks right out of the box. In addition to the many new applications making their debut in KDE 3.2, the veteran applications have been refined and augmented generously. By installing some or all of these applications common desktop tasks such as web browsing, file management, email, personal information management, instant messaging, software and web development, multimedia, education and entertainment can be accomplished quickly and easily. This impressive collection of software is complemented by a recent update to the KOffice integrated office suite.

Reflecting its international team and focus, KDE 3.2 is currently available in 42 different languages. Partial translations into 32 other languages are also available, many of which are expected to be completed during the KDE 3.2 life cycle. With 74 different languages and full localization support, no other desktop is as ready to serve the needs of today's global community.

KDE 3.2 also provides improvements in usability and performance. Noticeable speed boosts in application start up times and webpage rendering together with many interface refinements make KDE 3.2 the most usable and performant KDE ever. Attention was also paid to ensuring that KDE is accessible to those with disabilities. Several accessibility related applications are included with 3.2 and work on integrating accessibility technologies directly into KDE's foundations is ongoing.

KDE has earned a reputation for quality and a comprehensive feature set among its global user base that is estimated to number in the millions. KDE is also proud to be the default user interface for several operating systems including Ark Linux, Conectiva, Knoppix, Lindows, Lycoris, Mandrake Linux, SUSE Linux, TurboLinux and Xandros. KDE is also available as a part of Debian, Free/Open/NetBSD, Gentoo, Libranet, Red Hat Linux, Slackware and Solaris, among others. In addition to these operating system vendors, more and more companies are offering commercial support for KDE, some of which are listed in the business directory of the KDE::Enterprise website. With the release of KDE 3.2, the KDE Project looks to enhance and grow this ecosystem of users and supporters.

근데 머신만 좋으면 괜찮을꺼 같은디요...

저는 600머신에서 qt,kdelibs,kdebase,kdenetwork까지 설치하는데..하루 약간 넘게 걸리더군요..ㅋㅋㅋ

깔아서 써본 느낌은 그들의 말대로 퀀커러의 속도는 발군이네요.
사실 그 이전부터 , 퀀커러가 모질라등의 게코엔진 기반의 브라우져들보다 상대적으로 빠른 속도를 보여준다고 생각해 왔었는데 , 이번 버전의 성능은 정말 대단합니다. 익스플로어에 뒤지지 않는다. 라는 느낌입니다. 오히려 기분탓인지는 몰라도 더 빠르지 않나? 라는 생각도 들구요.
전체적으로 속도가 좋아졌다. 라고 주장하는데 그건 그런거 같기도 하고 그렇지 않은거 같기도 하고 , 말하기 어렵네요.
그렇지만 QT 를 별로 좋아하지 않기 때문에 그다지 쓰게 될것 같진 않네요. XFCE4 로 주 관리자를 옮긴지도 얼마 되지 않았고.
KDE 를 주로 사용하셨던 분들에겐 분명 상당히 유용한 업그래이드 인것 같습니다.

착하게살게요. :)

khtml은 아직 자바스크립트 지원등이 게코엔진에 비해.. 떨어지기때문에
단순 비교는 힘들지 않을까 싶습니다 :D

게코 엔진 만세!! ~~

아 오페라도 한번 써보세요..
오페라도 상당히 빠릅니다 :D

document.all 등을 지원하기 때문에.. 리눅스에서 싸이월드를
이용하려면 오페라를 사용하는 게 한가지 방법이 흐흐흐

오랫동안 꿈을 그리는 사람은 그 꿈을 닮아간다...

NetBSD에 깔아 봤는데 폰트 등록과 변경이 제대로 되지 않는 좀 심각한 버그가 있습니다. 리눅스에서는 어떻습니까?

혹시 KDE control center 안에 있는 font installer 를 이용하신 건가요?
아직 3.2는 안써봤고, 3.1.5를 쓰고있습니다만 3.1.5에서도 어딘가 좀 이상한
거같더라구요. 그리고 xft 를 사용시 fonts.conf에 설정들이 잡히는게 아니라
xfs의 설정파일에 기록되어서 적용이 안되는듯..

전 맘편하게 xft 체크해놓고, /etc/fonts/fonts.conf 파일을 직접 edit하여 설정해주고,
XF86Config 파일과 xfs는 몇몇 xft를 지원하지 않는 프로그램들을 위하여
최소한의 설정만 남겨둡니다.

그래서 어플리케이션을 찾더라도 되도록이면 xft지원 어플을 찾게되더라구요..
