Good riddance…

… to school and all that. I’m finished for the semester and summer is here! Which means….. more time hacking on Specifix!

In any case, KDE 3.4 is packaged, built into the repository, and ready to go. (Or at least should be at the time of this entry.) Lots of bugfixes are included in this new release, so if you’re still running KDE 3.3.x you should download and try it out.

The job hunt continues, although I’ve yet to recieve any callbacks from any of the places I’ve applied. Hopefully something will pan out soon.

In the immediate future, I think I’ll focus on clearing up the applications menu, by making sure the entries in /usr/share/applications are all meaningful, and see about setting up KDE to only show it’s application menus, and not those entries which should really show up only under GNOME, like the screensaver icon. (Should be possible, requires more research.) I’d also like to fix GNOME to only show GNOME icon themes, and KDE vice-versa. Basically, get the menus and themes working together nicely.

Next on the todo list is further investigating init scripts. I’m highly interested in developing a parrallel, dependency based, init system, preferably with a graphical touch added in, but this is less urgent on the priority list.
