Plasma Active Two Brings Many Improvements
The KDE camp is announcing today the release of Plasma Active Two.
Plasma Active Two is the second release of Plasma Active, which is the KDE effort to create a cross-device user experience for emerging devices (tablets, media centers, smart-phones, etc).
Among the improvements in KDE Plasma Active Two are performance enhancements (graphics performance, faster start-up, better application run-time), context-sensitive recommendations, and wider hardware support.
Plasma-Active.org lists the following as well about this new release:
- Release Two of Plasma Active provides radical performance improvements, optimized and adapted code, faster startup, significant decrease in memory consumption, and quicker browser response.
There's also a video about Plasma Active Two that's embedded below.
The first release (Plasma Active One) came in October while Plasma Active Three is planned for release next summer. The next release will focus upon better security, even greater hardware support, and other customization possibilities.
The Plasma Active project does offer up spins of the MeeGo and Mer operating systems with this KDE user-experience while it's also been tipping up elsewhere and can be manually installed for other Intel and ARM platforms.
