Latest changes before final release:

  • KDE should be fine for release.
  • Only the KDM/Xorg logout issue is still being worked on (#443320 ).

Last-minute release notes (deadline May 1st):

  • Last-minute release notes should be complete.

KDE 4.0.4 for F9 0-day updates:

  • KDE 4.0.4 is going to be tagged tomorrow.
  • So the earliest inclusion in F9 would be as an update on release day.
  • But this will need external testing because there is no updates-testing repository until release.
  • So KDE 4.0.4 will be build shortly before the release and be pushed to updates-testing on release day.

KDE 4.1 snapshots for F10:

  • Alpha tarballs were release recently.
  • LorenzoVillani did some initial work on which we could build upon.
  • Dependencies on libplasma which got a API rewrite and will need updates/rebuilds: compiz-kde, kdenetwork, kdeutils, kdebase-workspace-*, extragear-plasma.
  • With 4.1, kdesdk should obsolete kaider and kdeutils should obsolete okteta.
  • When KDE 4.1 is released it will be also released as an update to Fedora 9 (but without kdepim-4.1).
  • Before KDE 4.1 hits Rawhide it will be announced to fedora-devel-announce.

Open discussion:

  • In some cases kdebase (from KDE 4) isn't installed during an update from F8 (kdebase-workspace obsoletes kdebase-3.5.x).
  • To handle these situations kdebase-workspace will require kdebase4.
