Why does this commit appears twice?

"Carsten Burghardt committed a change to kdepim/kmail in KDE_3_3_BRANCH on August 06, 2004 at 05:40:56 PM

Do not crash during startup. This patch is rather intrusive but I do not see a chance to fix it
rewriting some stuff.
It also fixes a bug that I noticed recently: when an imap folder is selected and you expand a
imap folder the readerwin was cleared.

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && have fun! :-)

Thanks for the tip:) Just upgraded, and my, what i nice desktop KDE is. There are so many nice new little features all around.

Some of the programs have not been upgraded yet, most noticably Kontact, and the kdewebdev programs. Anyway, they will be there sooner or later.

Thanks KDE developers, and debian packagers!


I noticed this with 3.2 also, it was released in Debian unstable before even kde.org had released it. Very nice hehe!

Great work everyone, thanks for everyone who put effort into this and anyone who helped getting to 3.3 in the first place. We have no one to thank but ourselves.. Onto the next release, yet again!

Lets pray it makes it into testing and thereby stable real soon now. :-)

Yours, Kay

Nice to see krita evolving so fast.
some time ago i thought that it was another dead subproject of KOffice.

My best wishes to the developers.

by Anonymous (not verified)

What subproject is dead? Even KPlato progresses every two months or so.

by Anonymous (not verified)

KPlato is not dead? Hmm, nice to hear!

by Nicolas Goutte (not verified)

It is going forward, even if not very fast.

Have a nice day!

by Nicolas Goutte (not verified)

I suppose that he has meant Kontour.

Have a nice day!
