KDE upgrades Linux desktop programme

The open-source KDE Project has released an updated version of its KDE graphical desktop solution for the Linux operating system.

The open-source KDE Project has released an updated version of its KDE graphical desktop solution for the Linux operating system.

KDE 3.5 includes improvements to the bundled Konqueror browser and the ability to handle widget-style applications.

The browser now includes an ad-block tool to filter web page advertisements. And on the desktop, KDE now includes the SuperKaramba tool, which allows users and developers to create widgets.

Widgets are small interactive applications that pull specific data from the internet, which can include RSS news feeds and other automatically loaded content.

Microsoft intends providing tighter RSS support in its forthcoming Windows Vista operating system next year.

The open-source desktop programme can be downloaded from the KDE Project’s site in compiled versions for the Arch Linux, Kubuntu, Slackware, and SuSE Linux operating systems.

This is the first update to KDE since March.
