KDE 3.2 Alpha 1 Finally on FTP

I've finally managed to get the last bits of the KDE 3.2 Alpha 1 (codenamed "Brokenboring") including KDevelop 3.0 Alpha 6
on the ftp server. The mirrors should soon pick it up.

There won't be any binary packages for this release because the KDE "Pi"
release is coming out soon. Everyone using Brokenboring is asked to
compile it with --enable-debug, so that we can get valuable feedback. There is a new unstable version of Konstruct also available to install it.

Other than that, feel free to play around with things, check if your bugs
are still there or if there are places where you can help. Check
the KDE 3.2 feature plan
for things to look for.

The code is quite rough in many places, but many of the developers
use it on a daily base and kdepim has improved so much that you can't live without it once you've tried it. :)

Thanks to everyone who convinced me that the code is good enough for
a release when I was tempted to drop the idea altogether. Just one final wish: check
for duplicates before you file bug reports and compile with debug information enabled
before reporting crashes -- you might find tons of bugs, but with
debugging information the chances we can fix them are much higher.

Comments

Good to hear KDE keeps moving forward. I use it every day. Will we finally have HTML formatting on outgoing messages in KMail in this release? Almost every GUI e-mail client has it now-a-days...

Look at

http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4202

As you can see there is progress here :)

Got compilation errors in kdegraphics and kdemultimedia (didn't get further than that) with the konstruct script. Where should I file them?

Since this is not a real release (I guess) I have the feeling bugs.kde.org is not the right place to go.


By Trip at Fri, 2003/09/12 - 5:00am

Um... this is gonna sound stupid for you guys that are tracking CVS religiously :), but where is KMail? Isn't it supposed to be in the kdenetwork package (that's where it was in the 3.0.x days) ? I just downloaded it last night, and no kmail. Is it in kdepim now? Or do I have to get it from CVS manually?


By Alex Ruse at Sat, 2003/09/13 - 5:00am

Yes, it's in kdepim.


By cm at Sat, 2003/09/13 - 5:00am

In kdepim. It was moved since the 3.1 release. You still need kdenetwork for some libraries I believe.

Woah, do you (KDevelop) guys actually double check to see if the released code actually builds correctly before doing a release??

(alpha #6 doesn't)

Bad, bad, bad..


By blegh! at Sat, 2003/09/13 - 5:00am

okay, nailed down the issue..

It just didn't work with my KDE CVS (dated: 2003-07-25).
After fiddling a bit with the auto* files, specifically removing the check for kmdi and setting it to make use of qmdi (included with KDevelop/Gideon) instead almost fixed it.

With this qmdi library, there was only one issue left (4 errors about some methods not being found).

Don't use the experimental "--enable-final". Several Alpha tarballs don't compile with it.


By Anonymous at Sun, 2003/09/14 - 5:00am

Everything compiles just fine in the Alpha6 release, only problem for me is kscd!!
It compiles just fine, but when I try to start it, it says:
kscd: relocation error: /usr/local/lib/libkdeui.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN9QGroupBox10setEnabledEb
Anyone know what to do about this?
Thanks in advance

So is the "kamera" the only official way to access digital cameras even on the future kde's?

Why not implement gphoto2-interface to the kooka, as they are actualy pretty similar thingies (camera and scanner)... ?

Or what about trying to get some 3rd party camera software maker (I would prefer digikam) to make their work integrated to the kde-3.2?

I grasp the unstable konstruct to build KDE 3.2.
Everything was ok so far but halted in the wifi module.
Here is the error msg:

So what's the problem I have got? I have a internal wi-fi
