    Default KDE Kontact Ported To Akonadi, KDE SC 4.6.4 Is Out

    Phoronix: KDE Kontact Ported To Akonadi, KDE SC 4.6.4 Is Out

    The KDE camp has two announcements to make today: the monthly KDE SC 4.6 point release (v4.6.4) and that the next-generation Akonadi-based KDE Kontact Suite is ready. "Unsurprisingly, the port of Kontact to Akonadi is finally being released the same day as Duke Nukem Forever, making it relatively timely."..

    KDE is continuing to evolve and hopefully continuing to get better and better with each update, considering GNOME's going downhill with that boneheaded move to Unity

    I'm using kubuntu-ppa and there's only KDE SC 4.6.4 update without Kontact.. Will the new Kontact be available in Kubuntu 11.04? Btw. it looks very interesting on MeeGo.

    Not as regular update. It's a new major version.

    Hopefully it will get into backports some day.

    Er, and where the heck is it? I can't find it. There are no files here:

    ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.6.4/

    I wonder what your other 400+ posts might be.
    Looking at this one I don't have hope that they are any good ...

    You see Unity is something from Canonical and not Gnome. Further the topic here is KDE and not Gnome.

    In any case let's see if Akonadi is up to the task, judging from the bug reports it probably still needs quite some time to work great.

    Does it mean that the most hated bug of KDE is finally getting a fix? Not bad... it only took 9 (that's right, nine, the number after 8 and before 10) years to fix that. At least that was the big promise of Akonadi. It gives me hope that the bugs I reported that don't have nearly as much votes will get fixed in maybe 30-40 years with some luck.

    Yeah, that's the real question. Akonadi shouldn't be deployed in systems that are meant to be used for real work, given all the problems that still surround it. It's a good concept though with lots of potential. Not to mention that KMail is the biggest problem that is holding the whole Kontact suite back. It's simply not ready for real-world usage with it's lack of proper html support to mention just one problem.

    OK you got me there, but I mentioned Gnome as an anomaly.

    Surely Akonadi indeed needs more work...definitely works a bit better than on KDE 4.4.5 and if they get it working without crashing or becoming a resource hog then so be it. The new Kontact sounds quite interesting and surely I'll be testing it out.
