Help Test the Next Generation of KDE's Kontact

(Other stories by Sebastian K├╝gler)

"The KDE PIM team has made available a beta version of the next-generation groupware client suite Kontact. The new Kontact is built on the Akonadi framework, sharing infrastructure for syncing with online services across applications. While the first bits of Akonadi integration already made their entry in KAddressBook as delivered with 4.4, this beta includes Akonadi versions of most of the other Kontact components, including email using the new KMail2.

"As the Akonadi-based Kontact marks a major step in the evolution of KDE's groupware apps, the KDE PIM developers decided to apply a feature-based release schedule to this port. It will be released when it's ready, which is realistically still this year. In order to achieve this, we rely heavily on community feedback, so please give this beta a run and get back to us with your feedback, preferably in the form of bug reports on bugs.kde.org."
