Previous weekend in Debian KDE land

3 interesting small things happened in the weekend.

Due to the hard work of mostly Florian Reinhard and George Kiagiadakis, Bluedevil is now available. Bluedevil is a new and improved bluetooth handling thing targetted the KDE Workspaces.

The Debconf people have uploaded the Qt Debconf frontend that I blogged about a while ago, so now it should be available.

Last, but not least, applications now has more accurate data for if they are online or not, by using the ntrack library. This was especially problematic for people having some interfaces defined in /etc/network/interfaces, and other interfaces managed by NetworkManager.
This feature will be committed to upstream KDE whenever Will gets around to do it.

As a added bonus, KDEBindings in Debian has seen a release critical bugfix (python plugins, e.g. plasma widgets, related), and the brokenness of Konsole (libkpty) on the kFreeBSD-arches have been tracked down to a libc issue and a patch has been made.

All of this is expected to be part of next stable Debian release, codename Squeeze.

  1. Is the ntrack library used in kde suite shipped in Debian ?
