Η κοινότητα του KDE ανακοίνωσε την κυκλοφορία της πρώτης RC έκδοσης του KDE 4, κάτι που σημαίνει ότι πλησιάζουμε και στην τελική έκδοση.
Ακολουθεί η επίσημη ανακοίνωση:
The KDE Community is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first release candidate for KDE 4.0. This release candidate marks that the majority of the components of KDE 4.0 are now approaching release quality.
While the final bits of Plasma, the brand new desktop shell and panel in KDE 4, are falling into place, the KDE community decided to publish a first release candidate for the KDE 4.0 Desktop. Release Candidate 1 is the first preview of KDE 4.0 which is suitable for general use and discovering the improvements that have taken place all over the KDE codebase.
At the same time, the KDE team releases the final version of the KDE Development Platform, which provides the needed libraries and applications the KDE Desktop is based on. The KDE Development Platform, comprising the basis for developing KDE applications, is frozen and is now of release quality. The sourcecode for the KDE Development Platform can be found in the "stable/" subdir on KDE's FTP server and mirrors.
Building on this, the majority of applications included in KDE 4.0 are now usable for day to day use. The KDE Release Team has recently underlined this by calling on the community to participate in reporting bugs during the time remaining before the release of KDE 4.0 in December.
Meanwhile, preparations for the KDE 4.0 release events are taking place, with the main event taking place in Mountain View, California in the USA in January 2008. Make sure you don't miss it!
With the first release candidate, the KDE developers hope to collect comments and bug reports from the wider KDE community. With their help, we hope to solve the most pressing problems with the current KDE 4 codebase to ensure the final 4.0 release is usable. We would like to encourage anyone who is willing and able to spend some time on testing to find and report problems to the KDE developers. It's advisable to have a current snapshot of the codebase handy. That makes trying things easier, it also helps the process by not having to hunt down bugs that have already been fixed.
You can find some documentation on the pages of our Bugsquad and in other places. There will be weekly KDE 4 Krush Days on Saturdays and everyone is invited to help out. Having a recent SVN checkout (follow instructions on TechBase) is great, but using the regularly updated openSUSE KDE 4 Live CD or the Debian KDE4 Beta4 Live CD, while very easy, is also a big help to us.
Get it, run it, test it...
For those interested in getting packages to test and contribute, several distributions notified us that they will have KDE 4.0-rc1 packages available at or soon after the release. The complete and current list can be found on the KDE 4.0-rc1 Info Page, where you can also find links to the source code, information about compiling, security and other issues.
