Krusader Newsletter, 15 november 2007

(c) 2005-2007 by The Krusader Krew, All Rights Reserved


Welcome to the seventh Krusader Newsletter of 2007 with news, views
and information about recent
developments and ongoing issues in the Krusader project. Our aim is to
inform of recent developments,
give a preview of upcoming features and to let our loyal users have a
direct line to the Krusader Krew.

Krusader-2.x for KDE4, porting continues
Porting efforts to KDE4 still continues, but one problem is that KDE4
is also under development and
unfortunately the KD4 API (Application Programming Interface) [1] [2]
[3] still changes so that when
Krusader compiles under KDE4-beta2, it doesn't compile anymore on
KDE4-beta3 ... ,
so that we where forced to modify the Krusader sourcecode again to
make it KDE4-beta3 compatible :(

Thanks to Csaba, Shie, Heiner and some other contributors for helping
porting Krusader, if you like you
can follow the developments at our devel-mailinglist [4] and on the
krusader-commits mailinglist wich
tracks the SVN commits [4].
To check out the latest Krusader 2.x for KDE 4 from SVN use:

$ svn co
