Pointer: openSUSE KDE Bug Squashing Days (20-21 September)

The openSUSE KDE team is holding a Bug Squashing event to work through the KDE bug reports in bugzilla.novell.com this weekend. Among the goals are reporting non-openSUSE specific bugs to bugs.kde.org and closing duplicates to reports within bugs.kde.org or bugzilla.novell.com - hope to see you! :-)

Pointer: KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop for 11.0 users

As there seem to be people who continue, despite being told about dependency errors and packages that cannot be upgraded, to install newer KDE packages (and then wonder about a broken desktop) I want to point out this important service information for users of the KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop repository in the openSUSE Build Service.

Pointer: KDE in openSUSE 11.1 and beyond

Zonker has posted on openSUSE News and his own blog our decision that openSUSE 11.1 will be the last release to include the KDE 3.5 desktop. This is a compromise how to handle the KDE4 transition after long discussions with many users.

Beyond, openSUSE 11.2 will contain only one KDE desktop - likely version 4.3.

New KDE Four Live-CDs

New versions of KDE Four Live are up to accompany the KDE 4.1.1 release and give an impression of the development in trunk half-way to the first KDE 4.2 Alpha release. These CDs are built with k*-branding-upstream instead of k*-branding-openSUSE packages (see openSUSE branding policy) so their desktop appears less green than usual. :-)
