KDE 2.1 Release Delayed 1 Week

David Faure, our release manager, has announced the latest KDE 2.1 release schedule. KDE 2.1 will now be officially announced Feb 26, mainly due to popular demand and the fact that the KDE Artist Team is hard at work polishing up this release. For a preview of what's to come, check out the new KControl design. Definitely seems worth the wait!

KDE Available on CD-ROM

One of the most common requests I get is "can I get KDE on CD-ROM?", I'm happy to say that the answer now is "yes!". I've created a page on KDE.org that lists all known vendors that have KDE on CD-ROM. I've also noted whether the vendor contributes part of the proceeds back to the KDE Project or not.

This all in prelude to the scheduled release of KDE 2.1 in mid-February. So what are you waiting for -- startcha 'loadin'.
