Plasma PackageKit integration approved as a Fedora 17 feature

I am proud to announce that my Plasma PackageKit Integration GSoC 2011 project has been approved as an official Fedora 17 feature.

In other news, I have recently laid the first stone for a port of my work to KDE Frameworks 5, by getting support for a plasma5 namespace into PackageKit.

    Any progress on porting kde from ck to systemd?

      KDM just needs to be built without ConsoleKit support, this is now done in Fedora 17.

      The workspace needs more work, I have a preliminary patch at, but it needs testing.

        Is there any functionality loss having kdm without ck? kdm will not support the systemd multiseat stuff until it’s ported, right?
