Date: Mon, 25 Jan 1999 16:00:27 +0100 (CET) From: Martin Konold <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: KDE-1.1 beta is available Dear KDE Enthusiasts, Due to the absolutely excellent work of all the developers I had the pleasure to make the KDE-1.1pre2 packages aka KDE-1.1 beta finally available on master.kde.org. In case we will not discover very serious problems with these packages they will become the final KDE-1.1 very shortly. The source is available on ftp://master.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/tar/generic/source/ The packages should appear very soon on our official ftp server ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/tar/generic/source/ During the next days there will also be offered rpm, deb and tgz binary packages. Please address all reports about problems to our new bug tracking system. http://bugs.kde.org KDE-1.1 will proof to be a big step towards a better working experience for several millions of people. (Current estimates are about 5-6 Million KDE users) Finally KDE-1.1 will not be the end but the beginning of an even more exciting experience. KOM/Openparts technology will be a big challenge for KDE-2.0. Thanks, -- martin // Martin Konold, Herrenbergerstr. 14, 72070 Tuebingen, Germany // // Email: firstname.lastname@example.org // Anybody who's comfortable using KDE should use it. Anyone who wants to tell other people what they should be using can go to work for Microsoft.
