SuSE and the KDE Team are proud to announce the SuSE packages of KDE 1.1.2.

Packages for both SuSE 6.0 - i386 / SuSE 6.1 - i386 can be downloaded from:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/SuSE-Linux/suse_update/KDE/update_for_6.1-i386

All packages will soon also be available from ftp.kde.org and its mirrors.

KDE 1.1.2 includes the KDE Theme Manager, a new tool enabling users to change their desktop theme -- ranging from colors and window decorations to icons and sounds -- with a few simple mouse clicks. This release includes hundreds of new high quality application and tool bar icons, created by the very active KDE Artists Team, which dramatically enhances the appearance of the desktop, the panel, and various applications.

Further changes include:

  • Significant enhancements and bugfixes to the KDE mail client (kmail);
  • New translations -- KDE now supports up to 35 languages;
  • Improved stability and HTML compatability in the KDE web browser and file manager (kfm);
  • Numerous bugfixes in many other packages.

SuSE congratulates all KDE developers with this impressive release and would like to thank them for all the hard work they have put into KDE.
