Draft Table of Contents Desktop Plasma - The desktop KWin - Advanced window management including compositing Strigi - Desktop search engine Nepomuk - Meta Data library Multimedia & Communication Phonon - Multimedia framework Decibel - Framework for real time communication Akonadi - Centralized PIM storage solution DNSSD - DNS-based Service Discovery Protocol, also known as Bonjour or Zeroconf Core Technologies KParts - KDE's component architecture (e.g. Kate, KHTML, Dolphin) KIO - KDE's network transparent input/output system Kross - Scripting framework D-Bus - Full support for Inter Process Communication (IPC) Services - Plugin System MimeTypes - File associations and content/data types Hardware Awareness Solid - Hardware and network awareness ThreadWeaver - Multithreading framework Specials Localization - Language support Standard Compliance (fd.o) KNewStuff2 - Collaborative data sharing Sonnet - Spell- and grammar-checking technology Further Highlights KGGZ - Simple access to the GGZ Gaming Zone, a free online gaming centre KOffice Architecture KDevelop - Development Platform and IDE Kdepim Suite - Private Information Management Amarok Article Content As rule of thumb all articles should be easy to read especially for users/developers new to KDE. As such, every article should roughly cover the following parts Introduction Quick overview of what this is about (easy understandable!) Highlights, interaction with other components, ... Why is this cool, i.e. worth to be listed in the KDE4 architecture page (easy to read, not too much internals) Further Resources Link to development tutorials (for developers) and similar resources (related content) Articles should should not span much more than 3 scrolled pages in a normal sized browser. It's all about giving an overview + links to further reading for interested visitors.
