the most recent commit digest reminded me of a nice little bit of news: the base kde installation of libs+base now includes exactly one text editor application application, kwrite.
kate (the app not the part; the latter is still in kdelibs, of course) has been moved to kdesdk since it is aimed more at people doing things like, well, programming. this also means that the kate plugins are moving out of kdeaddons and into kdesdk with kate itself. so if you use kate you'll get all the plugins too.
so a minimal desktop gets exactly one text editor and kate users get more functiona by default. the "multiple text editors complaint" was a bit silly at the best of times, but now there's no reason for it at all anymore.
