The freeze is on….ward to KDE 4


The Release Team has decided that it is time to close the books on KDE 3.5.

To quote coolo:
“No more features, no more string changes, no more docu changes….
Bug fixes are allowed and after some time we’ll do another maintenance
update 3.5.8 – e.g. in september.”

So bugfixes only from now on in the 3.5 branch. Β If the bugfix requires
a string change, you will need to coordinate that change with the translators.

Onwards to KDE 4.0!


Man today is a great day! So lets hope that 3.5.8 comes out in time to make its way into Gutsy, and then we can look at KDE 4 in Gutsy+1. To the entire KDE community…AWESOME JOB! This is a great feeling, an amazing feeling. It is kind of sad to see the 3.x series come to an end, as I have been with it the entire time, never missing an update. I feel like a proud papa again πŸ™‚

    I hope Konqueror doesn’t get killed off. >_

  • Amy, I can guarantee you Konqueror isn’t going anywhere πŸ™‚ Dolphin will be a light file manager for people to use, but Konqueror should be there in full force. If not, how about you and I maintain it πŸ™‚

  • Thanks deigo! I was watching some videos that Aaron Seigo did with Plasma…Pretty cool stuff. And then all of the kwin composite stuff totally rocks. I have been playing with it here and there is stuff in there I would have never expected. Great work by the KDE devs for sure!
