1. Preview Issue 116 / July 2010

-----------------------------------
Ubuntu 10.04 Sixpack
-----------------------------------

Ubuntu just rolled out the new version 10.04 “Lucid Lynx”
release, and users around the world are waiting for a look.
This month we bring you six great Lucid Lynx variants on a
single-sided, double-layer DVD.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Cover Story: Inside KDE's New Desktop
----------------------------------------------------------------

When we set out to look for emerging technologies that are
making their way into real projects, our focus quickly fell on
the innovative KDE project. We show you the semantic web
technology in KOffice, and we study how to build a custom
plasmoid applet. Then we round out our emerging technology
set with a study of 3D printing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Logfile Viewers for the Desktop and Shell
-------------------------------------------------------------------

While users are surfing the web, listening to music, and
writing documents, the kernel and various background daemons
write information to logfiles. KSystemLog, Gnome System Log
Viewer, and MultiTail will help you read and process logfile
data.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Updates on Technologies, Trends, and Tools
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the newly retooled News section!

leave to a small group of elite researchers. Peekabot saves
you the investment in hardware and simulates a brave new robot
