July and August in Red Hat KDE

After summer vacations I'm back with reporting on exciting things happening in the KDE world at Red Hat. Everybody has been super busy with preparations for this year's meeting of KDE contributors conference -- Akademy -- which our team is co-organizing; nevertheless the number of topics tackled didn't decrease, quite the contrary.
