[KDE] KDE Software Compilation 4.6 RC1 Release Announcement

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Quote:
December 23rd, 2010. Right before christmas, KDE has published the first candidate for the upcoming release of KDE 4.6.0. The focus at this stage is on fixing bugs and completing translations and artwork. As such, the rework of the Oxygen icon set is nearing completion, many bugs reported by testers in the past weeks have been fixed and stabilization is still in full swing.

KDE's release team has decided to not include the new release of KDE-PIM, containing the Kontact groupware client and the new KMail2 which is based on the Akonadi groupware cache in this release due to open issue with migration of large sets of data from the traditional client. These bugs are being worked on as we speak, but the risk at this point is too high to include the new Kontact in the 4.6.0 release. Therefore, it has been decided to release KMail2 and its companions together with one of the subsequent 4.6 releases, likely 4.6.1 one month later. A 3rd beta version of the kdepim module is available already.

As the other components of the frameworks, workspaces and applications are nearing release date, KDE encourages testers to give their favorite software some final thorough testing. The last chance for feedback will be the second release candidate, planned for January, 5th 2011. The final release of 4.6.0 will be available on January, 26th 2011.

This is great news!
Shouldn't be left ignored without a post for a whole day


sadly, gnome became so popuplar because of the new so popular UnstableBUNTU out there
At least ubuntu is calling attention towards linux, but in a bad way, since it uses gnome...

Yea, KDE is so much more powerful than Gnome, but I hate the delay on the Linux Mint KDE Edition. frown.gif

Much love for KDE. They keep bettering an already robust, versatile, and mature desktop environment.

New to Linux are you? You might want to try out KDE (not just try a few kwin effects) for all of it's features, because Linus Torvalds himself prefers KDE. The technologies within KDE are advancing GNU/Linux by leaps and bounds compared to other projects.
