Bangarang is a semantically empowered media player. Fully integrated with KDE’s Nepomuk semantic storage, Bangarang has access to indexed media information and automatically shares its own media information, rating, tags, and usage statistics with other Nepomuk powered applications. Anything Phonon multimedia system plays, Bangarang plays. Audio settings and video settings are automatically enabled if the Phonon backend supports it. Plasma desktop widgets with MPRIS support can directly control Bangarang. Bangarang keeps you in control of your media experience. It provides quick access to lists of recently played, highest rated, and frequently played items. The Info View provides helpful information when you need it. Media information can be edited easily. It can fetch artist, song, movie, and TV show information from open data providers like Last.fm, themoviedb.org, and theTVDB.com. Bangarang lets you use either tags or files and folders to organize your media in any way you wish.
Calligra is an integrated suite of applications that cover office, creative, and management needs. It offers applications on both desktop computers and mobile platforms like tablets and smartphones.

Chakra Linux is a Linux distribution that combines the simplicity of Arch Linux with KDE. It is fast, user-friendly, and extremely powerful. It can be used as a live CD or installed to hard disk. Chakra is currently under heavy and active development. It features a graphical installer and automatic hardware configuration. Chakra provides a modular and tweaked package set of the KDE Software Compilation with a lot of useful additions. It features the concept of half-rolling releases and freshly cooked packages and bundles. It is designed for people who really want to learn something about Linux or don't want to deal with administrative overhead.
The Gluon project is an open framework for creating and distributing games, supporting the flow of the idea all the way from the author to the player of the finished game. The current goal for the first stable release is to create games using 2D graphics. The reasoning behind this is that the niche for this type of visual is very large and so far untapped by specialized tools. In the world of 3D games there are solutions such as Unity3D, which provide a distribution system, but in the 2D game development world there are no tools to provide a complete ecosystem for creation, distribution, and feedback gathering. The three main audiences of Gluon are game creators, game players, and application programmers. Each of these are a user of one of the tools.
GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism which the Hurd uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides. Mach is particularly well-suited for SMP and network cluster techniques. Thread support is provided at the kernel level, and the kernel itself takes advantage of that. Network transparency at the IPC level makes resources of the system available across machine boundaries.
K9Copy facilitates several methods for backing up a DVD. The software enables direct backup of a single layer DVD-5, provided the user's computer has a DVD recorder. Likewise, direct backup of a dual layer DVD-9 is possible with a dual layer DVD recorder. K9Copy is also able to fit the contents of a dual layer DVD-9 onto a single layer DVD-5. The interface allows a user to explicitly retain or discard any content from the original disc such as video titles, audio tracks, subtitles, and the DVD menu. All content selected for backup is compressed to a configurable target size (4400 MB by default) and stored on the user's hard drive as either an ISO image file or a DVD VIDEO_TS folder. K9Copy can either transfer the backup data to blank DVD±R media or utilize external DVD authoring software such as K3b for this task. Furthermore, an ISO image file produced by K9Copy can be recorded to DVD by any software on any platform capable of recording ISO images to disc. It can also back up a DVD to a video file (such as MPEG-4).
KDE Plasma Active is a user interface for all types of tablets, smartphones, and touch computing devices, such as settop boxes, smart TVs, home automation, and in-vehicle infotainment. It is a joint project by the KDE community, basysKom, and open-slx. Its goals are a fast embedded UX platform with minimal memory requirements, customizable and modular to support different form factors, and an interface which adapts as users change activities.
For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
Kst is a fast real-time large-dataset viewing and plotting tool with built-in data analysis functionality. It contains many powerful built-in features and is expandable with plugins and extensions. It features powerful keyboard and mouse plot manipulation, a large selection of built-in plotting and data manipulation functions (such as histograms, equations, and power spectra), built-in filtering and curve fitting capabilities, a convenient command-line interface, a powerful graphical user interface with non-modal dialogs for an optimized workflow, support for several popular data formats, extended annotation objects similar to vector graphics applications, and high-quality export to bitmap or vector formats,
The best suite for working with photos ever created.
Simply the most powerful. the most advanced and very beautiful desktop environment. I also like it how much customizable it all is.
The best GUI toolkit ever. And so much more.
The best IDE! I love the new syntax cheking and code navigation in KDevelop 4. Can't wait for the Java support.
