As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default. The announcement stated:

Korora 22 (Selina) available

It has been a long road to the Korora 22 (codename "Selina") release and we're sorry that it has taken so long. However, it is now finally available for download (we strongly recommend using BitTorrent).

Korora 20 Peach Reached EOL.

Since we use Fedora as the base for our distribution and thus follow the Fedora Project's life cycle, it means that Korora 20 Peach reached it's End Of Life status yesterday on June 23.

The Return of Korora MATE

The Korora Project is very pleased to announce that the final release of the MATE edition of version 21 (codename "Darla") is now available for download in both 32- and 64bit, (we strongly recommend using BitTorrent).

Xfce, the missing nm-applet and how to fix

Last week Xfce users on the Korora and Fedora side reported that, after updating their machines, the nm-applet had disappeared. This was/is caused due a bug in gtk3.

Xfce 4.12 & Korora

After more than 2 years development the latest version of the Xfce Desktop Environment was released recently. Version 4.12 brought many improvements both in bug fixes and new features. As you would expect from Xfce the update is stable, evolution rather than revolution. But how can you get it in Korora?

No Updates on KDE on Korora 21

There have been several reports of Korora (and Fedora) 21 KDE not updating. Apper, the KDE Package Manager, will usually show available but this has not been happening for some time.

Korora 21 (Darla) - Now Available

It has taken a few weeks longer than we had hoped, but we're finally happy to announce that the final release of version 21 (codename "Darla") is now available for download (we strongly recommend using BitTorrent).

Lens: An alternative to desktop agnostic UIs

I've been playing with a little side project that aims to help build lightweight GUI applications that look native-ish on multiple Desktop Environments (DEs). The immediate use case was to look native-ish in both Gtk and Qt based environments. My definition of native-ish is the little things such as using Gtk windows when in Gnome or Qt event loop bindings when in KDE. Of course, if the developer so chooses, any combination thereof.
