KDE 3.5 Alpha 1 Finally on FTP

Filed under
KDE

To begin the KDE 3.5 release cycle, I uploaded KDE 3.5 Alpha 1 to the FTP servers. We're facing some trouble that is typical for an Alpha release, but it also brings some nice KDE 3.5 features to your desktop. The easiest way to try it is the KDE 3.5 Alpha Live CD or compile it yourself with the Konstruct build script.

But compile it only if you have the place and the time to help with debugging it (pass --enable-debug to "configure"). Please report bugs to bugs.kde.org and feel welcome to join the KDE Quality team to improve its quality in general. And don't forget: it might be the last KDE 3 Alpha release you have the chance to try - don't let the chance pass by!

Unfortunately, while the company knew exactly what it was doing, its loyal Ubuntu desktop user base didn’t. Read more
