KDE2 Release Delayed One Week

Due to the popular sentiment that KDE 2.0 is not quite ready for prime time, Matthias Elter, the release coordinator, has announced that a second release candidate is being prepared. RC2 will undergo scrutiny and testing by developers and packagers alike so that those final showstoppers can be found and squashed. KDE 2.0 final tarballs have been delayed one week and are now scheduled to be released to packagers on the 16th, with a public release of the packages on October 23rd.

KDE Project issues statement on GNOME Foundation

The KDE Core Team took a break from coding and wrote up an official response to the whole GNOME foundation thing. It wouldn't have been necessary if not for the endless questions and misinformation about the project ever since the original announcement.
