K3b 2.0 released with Blu-ray support

Jun 30, 2010, 17:35 (0 Talkback[s])

"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". Although pre-release versions have 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 use legacy libraries, the application takes advantage of the new platform and integrates better with it. Solid, the KDE hardware layer, is now used for hardware detection.

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