KDE "Stephan Binner, a well-known KDE and openSUSE developer, has released a set of live CDs featuring the latest development snapshot of KDE 4 (screenshots). Unlike the SLAX-based live CD called KLAX, which he used to develop in order to demonstrate new KDE releases, his 'KDE Four Live' images are based on openSUSE. After a large, uncompressed live DVD released earlier in the week, a set of smaller live CDs (compressed with Squashfs) is now also available for download. Don't expect trouble-free computing with these early KDE 4 snapshots, but as demonstration tools designed to give KDE users an early taste of things to come, they aren't too bad. The first alpha build of KDE 4 is scheduled for release early next week."

And how search engines are related to icon emblems? In this case I mean.

They aren't just indexers, Strigi is a plugin-based storage system (and xmlindexer is used to feed it). Nepomuk can store meta-data in it, and provides a easy API to store and retrieve meta-data. Like labels. So the Dolphin dev's just need to use the API, then overlay the emblems (and KDE already overlays icons over icons, for example to show the contents of a folder, so that's there already as well). Just connecting the parts. Maybe not like 10 minutes work, but no weeks either.

1 week, and nepomuk will be part of KDEbase. No reason to be so negative.
