KDE 3.5.9 Release Announcement

Filed under

The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.9, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes. The most important changes have been made to the KDE-PIM applications, including the KMail email client, KOrganizer, a planning application and other components.

The KDE-PIM enterprise branch, that has already been shipped by some distributions has found its way into the stable branch of KDE. While KDE 3 has been in bugfix mode for quite a while now, the Release Team has decided to merge the enterprise branch and release it as KDE-PIM proper in 3.5.9 since no regressions are known and it makes packagers' lives easier.

New features and bugfixes in this branch include, but are not limited to:

* A Favorite email folders view in KMail, as well as drag and drop support for folders
* Easier scheduling in KOrganizer through various improvements in the user interface
* Improvements in KAlarm and KAddressbook

Many more of those can be found on Techbase. More bugfixes contained in this release can be found in the Changelog.

For a more detailed list of improvements since the KDE 3.5.8 release on the 16th October 2007, please refer to the KDE 3.5.9 Changelog.

KDE 3.5.9 ships with a basic desktop and fifteen other packages (PIM, administration, network, edutainment, utilities, multimedia, games, artwork, web development and more). KDE's award-winning tools and applications are available in 65 languages.
