KDE needs a relicensing! While I’m not happy that the release of the GPL3 made such an effort necessary… But now it’s important to handle it fast and correct. Please give your feedback to techbase or use SVN:
svn co svn+ssh://$email@example.com/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdesdk/scripts
vi scripts/relicensecheck.pl & add your name to all the four lists (that is if you agree to all four options)
svn ci scripts -m “I agree to a relicense”
As Tom Alberssays:
“Really, it’s not more than a minute of work for you.”
I’m running KDE4 RC1 as my main desktop for 2 days now. Only few crashes, so productivity is good. But there are many small bugs. And it’s not very fast/responsive. But this is at least partially to blame on all the debug code.
Quite happy so far! It’s shaping up! Please test!!!
Packages from Kubuntu: HOWTO
KDE Four Live: openSUSE based Live CD KDE4Daily: full virtual machine image with efficient update mechanism to SVN head
Please report any possibilities to try out KDE4 the easy way in the comments section:-)
[00:32] aseigo: wow, the oxygen stuff looks already pretty sexy

[00:36] looks nice, yeah..
[00:36] there’s some funny bugs, though, like how the oxygen widget style prevents drag and drop working properly
[00:36] aseigo: sure it’s buggy, but it’s good enough to end up in my monthly propaganda column 🙂
