Linux Mint drops LMDE KDE and Xfce

Going forward, LMDE ISOs will be released in two versions: MATE and Cinnamon. The decision was taken not to maintain a KDE version of LMDE and to stop maintaining the Xfce version. This was a painful decision to make considering the quality of LMDE Xfce and unofficial LMDE KDE, but one that made sense for Linux Mint since LMDE Xfce represented only 4% of the Linux Mint audience.

This is also consistent with our strategy to focus on what we do best, to do less and do it better and to invest less time in maintaining editions and more time in developing the core technology that they use. It was a tough call at the time when Linux Mint lost its Fluxbox and LXDE editions. They were great but they only appealed to a minority of our users and we can see the benefits of this decision now, we can release all our editions and switch to focusing entirely on the development of the next iteration much faster in our release cycle. Whether it’s Cinnamon, MDM, the Software Manager, the Mint tools, the LMDE live-installer or even new projects such as a Driver Manager or R&D plans related to the installation and/or base underneath Linux Mint, development is extremely important to us.

EFF hekelt privacy binnen Ubuntu 12.10

De Amerikaanse digitale rechtenorganisatie EFF heeft felle kritiek op de privacy binnen Ubuntu 12.10 en gaat daarbij in op ‘Amazongate‘. Het nieuwe zoeken met Dash zou in eerste instantie standaard aangevuld worden met gerichte advertenties van Amazon. Hoewel deze functie inmiddels optioneel kan worden uitgeschakeld, is dat niet genoeg voor de privacy-voorvechter.

De zoekfunctie binnen Ubuntu 12.10 is namelijk nog steeds niet veilig, stellen zij. Dat komt door de onbeveiligde https-verbinding waarmee de Amazon-reclames worden opgehaald. Ook het feit dat Ubuntu-maker Canonical zoekdata kan delen met meer bedrijven dan Amazon. De EFF wijst daarom op alternatieven als GNOME 3, KDE, of Cinnamon.

Netrunner 4.2 – Dryland SE

Binnenkort komt er weer een nieuwe release van Netrunner, een KDE distro gebaseerd op Kubuntu 12.04 LTS :

We are preparing our next release:
Netrunner 4.2 called “Dryland – Second Edition”.

As the name indicates, it will continue on the Dryland cycle, yet be a full release that includes all the latest stuff from precise pangolin (and then some).

Since it is based on upcoming Kubuntu 12.04, we hope to have it ready 2 weeks after their official release.

An upgrade tool is also being tested to allow upgrading from Dryland -> Dryland SE.

Canonical staakt financiële ondersteuning Kubuntu

Vannacht zag ik het al op Arstechnica.

Canonical gaat de Kubuntu-distributie niet langer financieel ondersteunen. Tot nu toe werkte een ontwikkelaar van Canonical in werktijd aan de KDE-versie van Ubuntu, maar na versie 12.04 moet de community het project verder ontwikkelen.

Dat heeft hoofdontwikkelaar Jonathan Riddell van Kubuntu bekendgemaakt via een mailinglist van het project. Canonical, het bedrijf achter de populaire Ubuntu Linux-distributie, droeg tot nu toe bij aan de ontwikkeling van Kubuntu; Riddell werkte in opdracht van Canonical aan de distributie.

Dat is na versie 12.04 van Kubuntu afgelopen. Riddell blijft wel in dienst van Canonical, maar kan dan niet langer onder werktijd aan de KDE-versie van Ubuntu werken. Daardoor zal de community alle ontwikkeling moeten oppakken. Riddell zegt in zijn vrije tijd weinig tijd te hebben voor ontwikkeling, omdat hij kampt met een slechte gezondheid.

Lees het hele artikel op Tweakers.net

Op zich wel jammer, maar aan de andere kant zijn er genoeg andere Linux distributies die KDE gebruiken. Bovendien vraag ik me af of de impact wel zo groot zal zijn door het wegvallen van 1 developer, er werd tenslotte al een hoop vanuit de community gedaan.
