As a Christmas present for KDE users around the world, the first release candidate for KDE Software Compilation 4.6 has emerged this morning. After being in beta for about one month's time, the developers have issued the first of two release candidates. The final release of KDE 4.6 is meanwhile scheduled to take place on the 27th of January.

KDE SC 4.6 RC1 mostly introduces bug-fixes, but there is one downfall with this release and it's the release team deciding not to integrate the new release of KDE-PIM with its Kontact GroupWare client and KMail2, but rather KMail2 and its companions will be landing in one of the monthly KDE SC 4.6.x point releases a month or two later.

The release announcement for KDE SC 4.6 RC1 can be read at KDE.org. See the KDE SC 4.6 Beta 1 announcement for details on what this collection of desktop applications and desktop environment have in store for this major update six months after the KDE SC 4.5 introduction.
