rekonq 0.1alpha

Here we are again, speaking about rekonq 0.1alpha release. If you just know rekonq and are interested in new features and code, take a look at announce in our mailing list or in our site.

On the contrary, if you don’t know, rekonq is a lightweight browser for KDE, based on webkit.  This release starts a new era in rekonq development: as promised, I’m (trying to) copying code to kde svn (playground/network/rekonq). And from now on, there are (at least) three new developers helping me on and some others providing hints, support and translations.

The alpha tag is due to the string freeze (we are providing Italian, Russian, German and … (?) translations) and to our first serious bug fix period.

Development is moving to port rekonq to WebkitKDE (the bindings, NOT the kpart). In case you are interested, contact us on #rekonq channel on freenode or through our new mailing list.

Enjoy.

  1. Personally I like “Druk”, it’s easy to remember, it has positive connotations (unlike European dragon myths), and… well… it has a “K” in it.

    Any other dragon related names

    Unfortunately webdragon is taken: http://www.webdragon.com.au/

    spiderDragon / dragonspider doesn’t seem to be: http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=spiderdragon

  8. I don’t like this icon ( sorry ).

    Our poor Earth is in a such bad state… this dragon is not friendly as Konqi. If you ask someone who don’t know anything about kde, he will say that this dragon will destroy the earth. IT IS REALLY A BAD ICON, well designed but scaring.
