KDE Mandriva has sent out a press release to highlight NEPOMUK, the semantic framework (think metadata) being developed by Mandriva and several partners and will be integrated in the upcoming KDE 4. It includes a link to a video demonstrating NEPOMUK integration into Dolphin, the KDE 4 file manager. In addition, "aKademy 2007 has kicked off! The first weekend hosted our user conference, which brought many talks about various topics, ranging from very technical to more practically oriented, which were spread over two tracks. The tracks were interweaved with keynote talks. Read on for the report of the aKademy 2007 keynotes."

Nepomuk is not a crazy name -- or at least, it's not invented by KDE. It's the name of the FP6 funded EC research project into the semantic desktop. (I'm not sure why they choose Nepomuk -- this particular saint is much more suited for on-line forums, since he's a patron saint against calmunies. Or perhaps they just took the town name.)
