The ambitious KDevelopment Team has released version 3.4 of KDevelop, a powerful, language-independent, user-friendly integrated development environment—that's not just for programming KDE apps. Version 3.4 is the first new release in more than a year, closing more than 500 bugs and adding several new features. New features include improved Qt 4 support, new debugging capabilities, an enhanced default user interface layout, improvements for C++, and Ruby and PHP support. Official KDevelop packages are available for Kubuntu and OpenSUSE; unofficial builds also are available for other distros. One of our fellow Linux media outlets recently called KDevelop one of the top “killer apps” on the Linux platform.
Although many Web hosting companies let you choose whether to host your Web site on Linux or Windows, Netfirms says it's the first to unite the two platforms under the umbrella of a single account. With its Business and Enterprise lines of hosting accounts, Netfirms has Windows-based applications executed natively on a Windows Server 2003 grid and Linux-based applications natively on a Linux server grid. “The two platforms are unified through proprietary clustered technology”, says Netfirms, “allowing customers to manage both transparently through a single account”. The Netfirms multiplatform server technology offers Windows-based functionality via the Microsoft Hosting Partner Program, including ASP.NET, Classic ASP and Microsoft SQL Server. On the Linux side, the full LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) is available. The two lines encompass a wide range of hosting options depending on the client's needs.
