I'm proud to announce that KDE Events, a new site for information about upcoming KDE events, is now online. The site is meant for community members who want to help represent KDE at trade shows and expositions, want to give talks or present their pet project at the KDE booth, and so on... KDE Events also includes a registration form for people who want to support KDE at upcoming events.
After 36 issues and over 300 mailing list thread summaries, I have decided to take a semi-permanent break as editor of the Kernel Cousin KDE project.

The KDE Project is proud to announce its
presence at CeBIT, the world's largest computer trade show, taking place in Hannover from March 13 to March 20, 2002. (Note the correct booth location of the KMail/Aegypten presentation is Pavillion P11/D 10-12.)
"For the first time, KDE will be present at no less than 2 to 4 partner-booths at CeBIT, each with a different emphasis on the great new features of KDE in its latest 3.0 incarnation," according to Torsten Rahn, member of the KDE development team.
