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 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.


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.

Would you be interested in providing the details of why QtMMKit doesn't work for you? We can take it offline if you don't want to do it here in the public forum, we are very interested in external feedback.
