KDE_3_3_BRANCH

For those not following the mailing lists, the KDE_3_3_BRANCH (and ARTS_1_3_BRANCH) has been created in CVS from which the release candidate and the final KDE 3.3 release will be created. kdelibs/kdecore/kdeversion.h already states "3.3.0" and won't be touched soon again so you can do a CVS build without fearing a complete rebuild to get 3.3.0 Final. Coolo has created release candidate tarballs which are currently tested for compilation. They should be publicly available tomorrow (without binaries) when I will also commit an updated Konstruct version.

The colors of the latest splash screen are said to be changed (to look less childish/cartoonish) and there seems to be a recent regression within Konqueror which immediately deselects text selections. Other than that everything looks fine and there are afaik no other showstoppers known (yet).

Yes, this one is a major annoyance.
Now let's all point our fingers at the one who committed this just a couple of days before RC1 ;-) - of course not, errare humanum est.
