KDE Frameworks 5 is the result of two years of hard work porting, tidying, modularizing and refactoring KDELibs4 into a new addition to the Qt 5 platform. In January, Alex Fiestas announced The KDE Barcelona Hub—an office where anyone is welcome to come and work on KDE projects. It was just what the Frameworks team needed to finish off the code so it could be released to the world. Read on for some of what happened.
Aurelien Gateau reports:
api.kde.org now contains a complete list of Frameworks thanks to Aurelien with Frameworks 5 now the default option.
Alex Merry spent his time on the small but tricky tasks all software needs to be of a high enough quality for release.
He also reports on other important topics such as install paths, meta data files and writing the Advanced Git tutorial.
One important discussion that took place in Barcelona was on the KDE Frameworks Release Cycle. We made the controversial decision to do away with bugfix releases and instead have monthly feature releases. Although some distribution packagers noted concerns about the lack of stable release updates, this is the pattern Frameworks is now following, which allows for much faster turnaround of new features.
The Post-it notes kept things orderly
Few people have done more to help the Frameworks project than Kévin Ottens who kept the weekend ticking over by sorting the post-it notes with tasks and highlighting notes which were taking longer than expected to progress. He highlights the processes that the team are following to allow for monthly releases:
Aleix Pol spent his time “Mostly moving things around in the CMake, especially install variables that got changed to make them more compatible with Qt 5“.
Alex Fiestas reports “Kai and I worked on Solid, we added QML support and designed the new asynchronous power management api“.
One of the people who has been a constant throughout the development of KDE’s platform is David Faure. He spent time working on the scripts that make releases possible without much overhead.
It was a successful week that wrapped up many of the loose ends that were needed to allow for last month’s successful release of Frameworks 5. With Plasma 5 now out and Applications releases on their way, Frameworks can be assured to be a platform for future work for years to come.
KDE is now getting into the swing of releases numbered 5. Today we add Plasma 5′s first bugfix update. The release features KDE’s flagship desktop project as well as the base software needed to keep your computer running. Plasma will have feature r…

Why do we need a ToS?
Drupal.org has grown organically for many years. Currently the site has thousands of active users that generate lots of content every day. Our current Terms of Service are limited to a short line on the account creation form:
This line is an insufficient ToS for a website of our size. In fact, Drupal.org is probably the only website of this size which operates without a published Terms of Service. This situation is uncomfortable, and even dangerous, for both Drupal community and the Drupal Association, which is legally responsible for Drupal.org and its contents.
We’d like to say thanks to the Drupal.org Content Working Group members and community members who already reviewed proposed documents and provided us with their valuable feedback.
UPDATE: Edits to the original drafts were made on 21st of August, 2014, based on feedback in comments to this post.
The Wine development release 1.7.24 is now available.
Beginning of some DirectWrite classes implementation.

The GNOME.Asia Committee is inviting interested parties to submit proposals for hosting the GNOME.Asia during the 2nd quarter of 2015.
The GNOME.Asia Summit is the featured annual GNOME Conference in Asia. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop, but also covers applications and the development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss both the present technology and future developments.
GNOME.Asia Summits have been held in Beijing, Ho-Chi-Minh City, Taipei, Bangalore, Hong Kong Seoul and Beijing respectively over the last seven years. The Summit’s preference is to find a new location each year in order to we spread GNOME throughout Asia and we are looking for local organizers to rise to the challenge of organizing an excellent GNOME event. The GNOME.Asia committee will assist in the process, but there is a definitive need for individuals to be actively involved and committed to the planning and execution of the event.
You can learn more about GNOME.Asia Summit at our website: http://www.gnome.asia
Interested parties are hereby invited to submit a formal proposal to the gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org . The deadline for the proposals is September 1, 2014. Please email your proposal to gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org. We might invite you to present your proposal in more details over our regular IRC meetings or send you additional questions and requests. Results will be announced by the third week of September, 2014.
The conference will require availability of facilities for 3-5 days, including a weekend, during the 2nd quarter of 2015 (between March and June). Final event dates should avoid other key free software conferences or other events that may have conflict and will be confirmed together with other GNOME teams which might get involved. Key points which each proposals should consider and which will be taken into account when deciding among candidates, are:
Please refer to the official web site of GNOME.Asia . Please also check the GNOME.Asia Summit check list , howtos  and the winning proposal for 2012  when putting together a proposal.
You are welcome to contact gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org if you have any questions.
Please help to spread the word and we are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
