Waldo Bastian has just
announced the proposed new release plan for the next official stable release: KDE-2.1.1.
This release is in line with the KDE Project's recently adopted policy of issuing a bug fix release shortly after any major official release to fix any critical bugs quickly and to let translators and documentation catch up.
Read more in the official
release plan, which is reproduced below.
KDE 2.1.1 Release Plan
The following is the outline for our KDE 2.1.1 release schedule.
The primary goals of the 2.1.1 release are:
- Critical bugfixes
- Completion of the translations in many languages
- Documentation for almost all applications
- Improvement of the icons (yes?)
All dates given here are subject to revision, but we will try out best to
stick to them if possible.
