Waldo Bastian, the KDE
2.2 release coordinator, has tagged KDE 2.2 for final release. Though
KDE 2.2.0 was scheduled for release today, it has been
slightly delayed to increase stability and speed. The current
schedule is to release KDE 2.2.0 next Monday, August 13. Future plans
include a KDE 2.2.1 bugfix/translation release, scheduled for September
2001. But the main development activity will occur in the KDE 3.0 branch,
which will be based on Qt 3.x and is scheduled for release early next year. Congratulations to all KDE developers for reaching yet another important milestone. Waldo's

Subject: KDE 2.2 tagged
Date: Sun, 5 Aug 2001 18:26:11 -0700
This is to inform you that the final tagging for KDE 2.2 has taken place.
Changes that, at this moment, do not have the KDE_2_2_RELEASE tag will not be
part of KDE 2.2.
For KDE 2.2.1 a KDE_2_2_BRANCH branch has been opened. To update to this
cvs update -r KDE_2_2_BRANCH
The KDE 2.2 branch remains frozen, that means that all fixes for KDE 2.2.1
should be posted for review first. The message freeze remains in effect for
this branch as well. The KDE 2.2. branch will be released as KDE 2.2.1 in
about a month from now.
The HEAD branch will become KDE 3.0 and is open for all your hacking
pleasure. The HEAD branch is the cvs branch that you get by default.
If you want your application to be part of KDE 3.0, _THIS_ is a good time to
move it out of kdenonbeta.
As mentioned before, Dirk Mueller will coordinate the KDE 3.0 release.
I hereby would like to thank everyone for his or her patience and commitment,
thanks to you KDE 2.2 seems to have become the stable release that we all
wanted it to be.
Thank you very much.
