Dear KDE Enthusiasts,

Due to the absolutely excellent work of all the developers I had the pleasure to make the KDE-1.1pre2 packages aka KDE-1.1 beta finally available on master.kde.org.

In case we will not discover very serious problems with these packages they will become the final KDE-1.1 very shortly.

The source is available on


The packages should appear very soon on our official ftp server


During the next days there will also be offered rpm, deb and tgz binary packages.

Please address all reports about problems to our new bug tracking system.


KDE-1.1 will prove to be a big step towards a better working experience for several millions of people. (Current estimates are about 5-6 Million KDE users)

Finally KDE-1.1 will not be the end but the beginning of an even more exciting experience. KOM/Openparts technology will be a big challenge for KDE-2.0.
