|| ||[UPDATE] KDE 4.0.0 Release Schedule|
|| ||Fri, 7 Sep 2007 10:03:47 -0400|
We, The Release Team, hereby announce that we are accelerating the
KDE 4.0.0 schedule  2 weeks by removing 1 Beta and slightly
extending the Release Candidate cycle.
Additionally, we are introducing a new "KDE Development Platform"
release to occur in late October. These release will contain all the bits
and pieces necessary to develop KDE4 applications; meaning it will
include kdesupport, kdelibs, kdepimlibs and kdebase/runtime.
NOTE the earlier freeze date for these modules and make sure you
don't miss the deadline (3 Oct) to get your fixes in.
