People of KDE: Jing-Jong Shyue

It is time again for a friendly meeting at the virtual interview table that Tink entertains on the People Behind KDE site. This week's guest is Jing-Jong Shyue, member of KDE's Traditional Chinese translation team.

KDE 2.1-Beta2 Is Out

Coinciding with the start of the LinuxWorld Expo here in New York, the KDE Team has announced today that KDE 2.1-beta2 is ready for your enjoyment. The attached press release goes into the details (and I can't help but throw in this cool screenshot of the new Konqueror splash page), and lists a number of pre-compiled packages. This all in prelude to the scheduled release of KDE 2.1 in mid-February. So what are you waiting for -- startcha 'loadin'.
