Introducing Project Bretzn

Apart from being a tasty Bavarian bread-snack, Bretzn is the code-name for a collection of technology aimed at solving a problem which has existed in software development for a very long time: How do you get your applications to your users?

This is particularly a question for the many developers of KDE applications that are not part of KDE’s six monthly Software Compilation releases. These developers must either provide binaries for a range of distributions themselves or hope that distribution volunteers will do the packaging for them.

However, there are already a number of services that can help to solve these problems. We have build services (such as the openSUSE Build Service) that allow the easy creation of binaries for many different Linux distributions (with other platforms in the work!), we have Open Collaboration Services (OCS) which allows easy, socially networked publishing of packages both to and from central software download sites such as openDesktop.org and KDE-Apps.org and we have powerful integrated development environments (IDEs) such as Qt Creator, KDevelop and Eclipse.

Until now these technologies and tools made up mostly isolated islands and it seemed an obvious choice to try bridging them. A project aiming to do just this began in August 2010 and was first publicly announced by Frank Karlitschek at the openSuse Conference in Nuremberg in late October: Project Bretzn would make it possible, with a few clicks, to publish software projects directly from the IDE – and it would all happen before the end of the year!
