KDE 4.4 Release Candidate 1 Released

There's only a few weeks left until KDE 4.4 will be released, but being released this morning is the first release candidate of the KDE 4.4 Software Compilation. KDE 4.4 is set to deliver new applications, improvements to the Plasma desktop, Nepomuk search advancements, and many other improvements. However, now it's time to test out all of this code before it goes gold, though there still a second KDE 4.4 SC RC2 release planned for later this month.

KDE Puts Out Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 1

The KDE development community this morning has announced the release of KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 1.

Anyhow, the 4.4 release of KDE carries many Nepomuk search improvements, further polishing to the Plasma desktop, various new applications (for blogging and scientific purposes), the KDE development platform brings the KAuth authorization framework, and there are many other improvements to a horde of KDE packages.

KDE Software Compilation 4.3.4 Released

Last month the KDE development community announced their plans to reposition the KDE brand. With what was previously just called "KDE" to mean the entire desktop and its packages, that is to now be called the "KDE Software Compilation" and KDE is no longer to mean the K Desktop Environment. There was also some other changes such as the workspaces now needing to be called the KDE Plasma Desktop or KDE Plasma Netbook, but that's besides the point of this article. What has been released today is KDE Software Compilation 4.3.4 (what would have just been called "KDE 4.3.4" a month ago).
