schedule is to release KDE 2.2.0 next Monday, August 13. Future plans
include a KDE 2.2.1 bugfix/translation release, scheduled for September
2001. But the main development activity will occur in the KDE 3.0 branch,

KDE User Mailing Lists Reorganized

The two venerable KDE mailing lists, kde and kde-user, both hosted at lists.netcentral.net, are being phased out in favor of two new mailing lists, kde and kde-linux, hosted at the KDE.org domain. Current subscribers to the existing mailing lists will need to subscribe to the new mailing lists. Administration of the old mailing lists will cease August 15 and they will be shut down altogether on August 31.

KOffice Suite 1.1 Release Candidate 1

KOffice RC1 has descended onto the well-known KDE ftp servers. Your best bet is to use it with KDE 2.2beta1 and Qt 2.3.1, but KDE 2.1.1 and Qt 2.2.4 will work (though not as well). The next release, scheduled for mid-August, will be 1.1 final, so this is your last chance to give KOffice a whirl and help find any remaining bugs before we are stuck with them until the 1.2 release <grin>. SuSE gets the binary-build over-achievement award.

KDE 2.2beta1 and KOffice 1.1beta3 now frozen

Due to recent instabilities in the CVS code, Waldo Bastian has announced that KDE 2.2beta1 has been delayed in favour of a message and feature freeze that will last a few days. During that time, developers will be busy finding bugs and bringing KDE CVS up to shape for a beta release. This probably means that KDE 2.2 will be released closer to July 30 than the previously planned July 23.
