News, Thoughts and Pretty Pictures September 15, 2009Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.
Lots of great news have arrived in the burning ground lands ( brazil means that, yaknow? ). the first news: Spread KDE continues, we just give 2 talks, one in UFBA and one in UNIME, for more than 150 studants in one, and on the other I prefer not to talk about it.
Tokamak ended, I have nothing to say but Wow, the great new stuff incorporated in KDE by the summer of code is really nice.
