KAlarm is a personal alarm scheduler which
displays messages, executes commands, or sends
emails, at scheduled times. You can set up
recurring alarms, or restrict alarms to working
hours. Among its options, it allows you to choose
the message font and color, whether to display an
advance reminder, whether to speak the message or
play a sound when it is displayed, whether to
cancel the alarm if it can't be triggered on time

The KDE 3.5 kdepim package provides KAlarm version
1.5. The KAlarm version downloadable from here
(version 2.0 for KDE 3) is functionally the same
as the KAlarm which is part of KDE 4.
Version 2.0.0: KAlarm now handles multiple
calendars, seasonal time changes and time zones.
Alarm texts can be generated by commands, and
alarms can be restricted to working hours. The
alarm daemon (kalarmd) is removed.
Version 2.1.0 has a simplified alarm edit dialog,
with a More/Less Options button. It has a new
option to exclude holidays. The Preferences dialog
organization is improved. Alarms now trigger
correctly after wakeup from hibernation. The units
for reminder time in the edit dialog are now
tailored to the delay until the alarm is due.
