08.01.2010 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: deployability Deployability. Is that even a word? :) I love it for how ambiguous it is, even though it's pretty obvious what it probably refers to. So what exactly was I thinking about when I put "Deployability" on my list?It is a potentially big topic. We could end up discussing user/group profile management and how we still don't have a KDE4 GUI configuration front end for Kiosk, like that KDE3 KioskTool, to make setting up such systems easier. (Side note: good news on the Plasma Desktop front! In KDE SC 4.4 will support all the Kiosk keys that KDesktop/Kicker used to respect.) While we certainly need som...13.01.2010 VMware to acquire Zimbra VMware to acquire Zimbra Posted by Steve Herrod Chief Technology Officer In August, I published a blog post explaining our acquisition of SpringSource, the popular open source Java development framework focused on simplifying the task of application development. Furthermore, we liked how SpringSource targets this application development simplicity for both on-premise and cloud deployment targets. Today I’m pleased to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Zimbra from Yahoo. While Zimbra’s domain is different than that of SpringSource, there are severa...08.12.2011 A week in virtualization A week in virtualization Today, you can join in the Beta testing fun for the new customer portal we’ve been working on for the past months.

The goal of this post is to provide additional details about what’s now possible with QtLocation 5.9. Rotating and tilting maps One long-standing limitation of the built-in tile renderer was the inability to draw rotated or tilted maps and map items. We finally removed this limitation, and in 5.9 maps as well as the map items added to them can be rotated and tilted. This also applies to MapQuickItems, which can be tilted by setting the appropriate zoomLevel val...13.06.2016 Debian: KDE: Reproducible Builds week 3, Randa Platforms Equals Busy times!

But offering that on platforms with no public styling API, is hard. A classic approach is to take snapshots of the native controls, tweak them, and use them as foreground or background in our own controls. Which is somewhat OK for static appearances. But when animations and transitions are involved, static pixmaps will only take you half the way. And since an OS can change style from one update to the next, taking snapshots runtime is risky. Using pre-grabbed snapshots is also something we don’t do because of le...
