KDE Before we get underway: I'm sorry, we don't have enough headline space to write 'KDE Releases Development Platform, Applications and Plasma Workspaces 4.6.0'. Then again, do any non-anal people every refer to it that way? No? I thought so. In any case, there's a new KDE version out with lots of new features, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.

Phonon is actually sort of deprecated in favor of QtMultimediaKit.


Phonon was created by the KDE crew, then merged into the Qt itself. Now the Qt devs have deprecated the Phonon parts in Qt. That won't mean KDE would deprecate it aswell.

And they're not going to do that in KDE4's era.

Right, Phonon is mostly deprecated on Nokia platforms. I don't see a particular reason why KDE couldn't follow suit though - QtMMKit uses gstreamer on Linux, and Nokia has a pretty strong incentive in MeeGo to keep it in good shape.

Except that it doesn't actually works. That is the problem with reinventing the wheel, nobody realize that the reason the old implmentations had some flaws was because the problem is hard not because everything Not-Invented-Here is stupid.
