K3b 2.0 released with Platform 4 and Blu-ray goodness

27 June, 2010. Today the reformed K3b team within the KDE Community is proud to release the final 2.0 of the premier disk recording application, codenamed “Komeback”. Though pre-release versions already enjoyed widespread adoption, we'd like to recap some of the highlights of this release.

K3b 2.0 marks the last milestone in the effort to port one of the most popular disk recording applications to KDE's current Platform 4. Although some parts still uses legacy libraries the application takes advantage of the platform and integrates better with it. Solid, KDE hardware layer, is now used for hardware detection,

On the interface front K3b 2.0 is a direct port of its KDE3 predecessor. Overall look remains the same but use modern widgets. For example, file browser shows a list of KDE's global Places and takes advantage of breadcrumb bar. The icons also have been updated matching the rest of Oxygen theme.

With a few exceptions K3b keeps feature-parity with 1.0.x series. It also have a bunch of new ones. Among them the biggest is support for Blu-ray drives.

  • Usability improvements by uncluttering the interface
  • Countless bug fixes
