KBFX - Releases Our vision has always been to deliver a better launch menu for KDE. We thank our user base for using it, and you can be sure, that we will progress work. KBFX for 3.5.2 is further developed.

But instead of writing an external Applet for KDE 4.0, we have the pleasure to announce that our team has joined the RaptorMenu team, the team to write a launch menu for KDE 4.0 within the plasma project of KDE itself. Siraj is now one of the maintainers of the project, and we are glad that we can bundle our efforts for a better launch menu more efficiently, by being a part of KDE development directly.

We like to thank our userbase and promise that we are still committed to our vision. Without you, dear users, we would probably not be in a position to be part of the raptor menu. Without your hints, your themes and so on, we wouldn't have been known enough, I think.

KBFX - Releases Hello everyone

I'm really glad to announce that we finally have a .pbi installer available for PC BSD.

After the feedback of the PC BSD community that kbfx doesn't work on PC BSD, Kris Moore of PC BSD and Siraj of KBFX have met on IRC to get the thing working. Afterwards, Kris Moore provided the pbi.

It can be found at
http://www.pbidir.com/packages.php?code=283


We'd like to thank Kris and the PC BSD User community for the collaboration. Without them, it would not have been possible to get it working.

Bye Everyone
