    On May 11, the KDE Community released the first alpha of KDE 4.0 aka "Knut" - which will boast a completely renovated desktop appearance. This release is a basis for the integration of powerful new technologies that will be included in KDE 4.0. This early alpha version reveals new visual appearance based on the Oxygen theme, improved hardware and multimedia integration (through Solid and Phonon), and new applications such as the file manager - Dolphin and the document viewer Okular. More information such as screenshots and installation instructions can be found in the KDE 4.0-alpha1 Visual Guide. The KDE team will release KDE 4.0 RC1 (release candidate 1) on Sep. 25, followed quickly by RC2 on Oct. 9. The final test releases of KDE 4.0 will appear on Oct. 23, 2007.

    When you guys post news, maybe you should post something of relevance for those of us who have no clue what the hell all the jargon and codenames mean :p.

    That way we can make comments unlike this one :roll:

    KDE is one of the two most widely used linux/unix based desktop environments. KDE4 is particularly important to windows users as it's final release will be available for windows.

    Well, how fast is it? How light on memory is it?

    And just as importantly ... have they actually organised the preferences yet? :rolleyes:
