I am proud to announce the release of K3b 1.0. After years and years of development, all the sweat (actually in the summer it can get sticky in front of the screen), all the tears (ok, admittedly, not that many), and all the countless hours I spent on a single application finally we have what I think is worth the big 1. K3b has come a long way since the early days in 1998 when it started as a dummy project for me to learn C++ and Qt development. The reason for that (besides my hacking) is the amazing feedback I got from the open source community and especially all the KDE worshippers. Give yourself a hand. Without all of you K3b would not have lived this long. I also want to thank Mandriva for supporting the K3b development these last few months. Their KDE support makes a big difference.

SermonSpice.com streams and sells catchy Bible-based videos for today's multimedia-leaning Christian religious services. When video producer George Temple started the company in 2004, it leaned on LAMP, a Tasman router, and osCommerce shopping cart software. Today, with 50,000 users downloading streaming media each month, SermonSpice's infrastructure looks different. The proprietary router is out, in favor of an open source device, but the open source shopping cart has been replaced with an application favors performance over freedom.
