"Third Beta Preview of Leading Desktop for Linux and Other Unixes."

"The KDE Team today announced the release of KDE 1.92, codenamed "Korner", the third beta preview of KDE's next-generation, powerful, modular desktop. Following on the heels of the release of KDE 1.91 (Kleopatra) on June 24, 2000, Korner is based on a snapshot of Trolltech'stm upcoming Qt® 2.2.0 and will include the core libraries, the core desktop environment, the KOffice suite, as well as the over 100 applications from the other standard base KDE packages: Administration, Games, Graphics, Multimedia, Network, Personal Information Management (PIM), Toys and Utilities. Korner is targeted at users who would like to help the KDE team make usability and feature enhancements and fix the remaining set of bugs before the release of KDE 2.0, scheduled for early September 2000."

"Korner benefitted greatly from a productive 10-day conference of many core KDE developers in Norway last week. "A lot has happened since the last KDE release", said Matthias Kalle Dalheimer, President of Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB and long-time core KDE developer. "Besides fixing many of the remaining bugs, we also achieved numerous improvements in useability, functionality and appearance. I am especially impressed by the remarkable advances in HTML display and in KOffice."
