Under the hood
The Trinity project is working hard to make TDE 3.5 easier to maintain. Many of the modules have been ported to CMAKE in this release. There have been cleanups of a number of libraries, and many stability fixes. For example, Flash no longer segfaults Konqueror and the lockups caused by OpenGL screensavers have been fixed.
The Trinity project also announced that they are taking over Qt3 maintenance from now on.
Congratulations to Trinity!
While the KDE community is focused on developing the 4.x series of KDE Platform, Plasma Workspaces and Applications, we welcome and support the efforts of the Trinity Project to provide a desktop environment for those who want to continue using the 3.x series!
