If you are running a web server or a VPS, you may encounter the need of sending emails using your PHP application. In the same way, if you are running a Wordpress blog or you are using any kind of CMS and you would allow your visitors to send you emails using a Contact form (for example using the Contact Form 7 plugin for Wordpress) you may need to install a simple program into your web server called sendmail.
Today, the Kde team announced the first minor release for Kde Plasma 5.9 including various little but important bugfixes and translation updates. Certainly, this first small bugfix release will improve the stability and usability of the desktop environment.
Global Menu is one of the most interesting features of Kde Plasma 5.9, the latest major release of the Kde Desktop Environment. Global Menus allow the user to have the application menu into the application itself, as a titlebar button or into a widget panel placed at the top of the screen. Global Menu is a very exciting feature a user would like to try, but unfortunately, for some reasons, enabling it may be a bit complicated if you don't know where to search.
As an Arch Linux and Kde lover, I'm pleased to let you know that the new Kde Plasma 5.9 is finally available into the stable repository. As you may know, this new major release of Plasma Desktop is bringing a lot of new and interesting features as Global Menus, a feature I'm very curious to try.
A couple of weeks ago I moved my Wordpress blogs from a trivial shared hosting to a more sophisticated VPS running CentOS 7 since I was in search of more flexibility from my server.

I'm glad to announce that Converseen 0.9.6 now supports ImageMagick 7, the newest branch of the open-souce image manipulation suite. Converseen is an open-source batch image processor for Linux and Windows, developed by me, that allows the user to apply automatically some operations on large groups of images. As instance, you can manage to resize, compress and change the format of a bunch of images before using them in your web pages.
During the last weeks I worked on the Qt5 porting of my open source project Converseen, a cross-platform batch conversion and image processor tool, thanks to the help of rezso, an user from GitHub who sent me some patches with a lot of useful changes that enabled the project to be compiled with Qt5.
Great news for Arch Linux users! From a few minutes, Kde Plasma 5.3 stable packages are officially available on Arch Linux repositories.
