Joup notes that the KDE on FreeBSD team is busy
readying KDE 3.0.1 packages and is in need

Evan Leibovitch points us to his Banks 'n' Browsers webpage. He surveys 300 banks in 30 countries but needs updates for KDE3. We also reported on this issue a while back.

On a Qt-related note, check out Guillaume's interesting article on Qt vs gtkmm. If you want to see Qt Unicode in action, Martin Gruner points us to BibleTime's awesome gallery. Finally, Mark Cox brings the
Serious Weird QRegExp tutorial to our attention.
Fulgore wrote in to point out that the UnitedLinux
partnership involving SuSE, Caldera, TurboLinux and Conectiva,
has specified KDE 3.0 as part of the distribution base, guaranteeing
KDE3 core availability to developers targeting UnitedLinux-based distributions.
We failed to trumpet it at the time, but it seems that KDE has been awarded the prestigious title of "Open Source Project of the Year" and KDevelop was named "Best Development Tool" by Linux Format Magazine. Check out the scans: award1.jpg & award0.jpg. I dare say KDE3, too, has been extremely well received so far.
Finally, for something seriously cool, Oblom points out this screenshot of Unreal II which brings a glimpse of KDE
to millions of Windows users.
