lets test KDE 3.5 Release Candidate

taken from :

List: kde-announce
Subject: [kde-announce] Announcing KDE 3.5 Release Candidate
From: Stephan Binner <binner () kde ! org>
Date: 2005-11-11 22:58:29
Message-ID: 200511112358.30030.binner () kde ! org
[Download message RAW]


KDE 3.5 is about to be finished, so we prepared a first release candidate.
We want to have it tested as much as possible, so please test if possible.

This release identifies itself in allmost all places already as version 3.5
and so do the tarballs file names.

You can download the release candidate sources from at

You can also use Konstruct to help you building the RC1 from sources. Get it

Because of the short timeframe for the release candidates we don't give the
distributors a head start of one week for binary packages. Binary packages
appear at - so far Novell/SUSE has
provided some and Kubuntu will add theirs during the weekend.

Thanks for your help in reporting bugs and giving feedback so far.

Greetings, Stephan

EclipseAgent- you do realize that news article are subject to review and approval before they are displayed- and since the mods don't have much time on their hands, sometimes articles take a while to be displayed.

me usin KDE 3.5.0-3 RC 1 from SUSE 10.0 supplementary KDE update, found no bugs so far. Performance has risen significantly and stability is top. great work. thats all i can say.
I heard from kde devs that there is only some help aqnd documentation left to change. SUSE users can upgrade safely now i think. Kicker stopped crashin on exit and the window manager works xtremely fast even on my hardware
