KDE innovates in Osnabrück -- again!

Stripped of your calendar, addressbook and email, 
what would you do in modern business life?
Exactly this are the applications the KDE PIM developers care for
and this is what they did when they met for the 3rd time in early
January in the city of Osnabrück in north-western Germany.

KDE [1] is the world-wide used graphical user interface
for GNU/Linux known to virtually any Linux user.
PIM stands for Personal Information Management, basically
the essential applications for most computer users.

Developer meetings like this happen often with KDE 
and are of the reasons for its grand success.
The computer programmers, ranging from spare timers to
full-time professionals, discuss plans,
technologies and the implementation in person.
Of course a good deal of hacking happens also, 
usually up to the early morning hours.

Intevation GmbH again provided their premises in the city-center
of Osnabrück as well as infrastructure for the guests coming from various

The choice of location is not random. Intevation
coordinated a number of contracted extensions of KDE --
professionally serving the customers needs 
and at the same time progressing KDE in general.
In cooperation with the KDE developers those features where
integrated into KDE mainstream for sustainable availability.
Examples for this are email security (Ägypten [2])
and groupware functionality (Kolab [3], [4]).

Numerous photos and reports [5] document the success of the three meetings.
