KDE 4.2 released

KDE 4.2 released

Published: Jan 27 2009


KDE 4.2 released

January 27, 2009. The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of "The Answer", (a.k.a KDE 4.2.0), readying the Free Desktop for end users. KDE 4.2 builds on the technology introduced with KDE 4.0 in January 2008. After the release of KDE 4.1, which was aimed at casual users, the KDE Community is now confident we have a compelling offering for the majority of end users.

The KDE team encourages everybody to spread the word on the Social Web as well. Submit stories to websites, use channels like delicious, digg, reddit, twitter, identi.ca. Upload screenshots to services like Facebook, FlickR, ipernity and Picasa and post them to appropriate groups. Create screencast, upload them to YouTube, Blip.tv, Vimeo and others. Do not forget to tag uploaded material with the tag kde42 so it is easier for everybody to find the material, and for the KDE team to compile reports of coverage for the KDE 4.2 announcement. This is the first time the KDE team is attempting a coordinated effort to use social media for their messaging. Help us spreading the word, be part of it.

On web forums, inform people about KDE's new compelling features, help others getting started with their new desktop, help us spread information.

Depends... I guess everyone must judge for his own. I am using KDE 4 since .1 and I am happy with it. It's stable enough to work with, especially with the .2 series. However you still might miss some things from KDE 3.5.x.

As for me, there are already a couple of things in KDE 4.2, which I would miss in KDE 3.5.x.
