Wow, what an exciting day its been... On top of the release of the Linux 2.6.26-rc4 kernel, MPX being merged, VIA announcing the OpenBook, and the major open-source R500 developments, KDE 4.1 Beta 1 has this morning been released to the public.

The KDE 4.1 Beta 1 release is the successor to last month's KDE 4.1 Alpha 1 release. New in this release is expanded shell functionality and configurability, KDE Personal Information Management (PIM) ported to KDE 4, and many other new and newly portd applications to the KDE 4 libraries. Plasma in particular has greatly improved with this beta release. Among the new KDE 4 applications include Dragon Player, the KDE CD player returns, and a new printer applet are also there. Read more about KDE 4.1 and download links are available from the KDE.org press release. Previously we provided an early look at KDE 4.1. Back at the KDE 4.0 Release Event we were first to share that KDE 4.1 will be released in July.
