KDE The KDE Software Compilation 4.11 has been released.

Gearing up for long term maintenance, Plasma Workspaces delivers further improvements to basic functionality with a smoother taskbar, smarter battery widget and improved sound mixer. The introduction of KScreen brings intelligent multi-monitor handling to the Workspaces, and large scale performance improvements combined with small usability tweaks make for an overall nicer experience.

This release marks massive improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate improves the productivity of Python and Javascript developers with new plugins, Dolphin became faster and the educational applications bring various new features.

This release of KDE Platform 4.11 continues to focus on stability. New features are being implemented for our future KDE Frameworks 5.0 release, but for the stable release we managed to squeeze in optimizations for our Nepomuk framework.

That name.

Try this as an autocad replacement for linux. It works beautifully and will read your DWG files perfectly.

Not affiliated with the company, but have done many linux migrations where draftsight came in handy.

Thanks for the link, will try it but really, if you work with civil engineering with different people nothing is going to substitute Autocad and its additions. I guess, this is the same kind of problem people that work on press industry faces, they need the Adobe Creative Suite (or Corel equivalent).

I really hope Autodesk someday, out of complacency and compassion, would port Autocad to linux but, sure, I understand the relation cost/reward may prove impracticable. I can dream, but never would hold my breath, of course. ;-)
