"Fourth Beta Preview of Leading Desktop for Linux and Other
"The KDE Team today announced the release of KDE 1.93, the
fourth beta preview of Kopernicus, KDE's next-generation, powerful,
modular desktop. Following on the heels of the release of KDE 1.92
on July 27, 2000, the release, code-named "Kooldown", is based on a
beta of Trolltech's 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. Kooldown
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 ("Kopernicus"), scheduled for
early-fourth quarter 2000."
"It is really great to work together with all of the dedicated
developers, translators, artists, documentation writers and beta
users. I'm very proud of the results that we have achieved with
this release and I hope that our users enjoy it just as much," said
core developer Waldo Bastian. "Given the massive amount of fixes
and improvements in usability as well as appearance, this beta
preview could also have been labeled a pre-release candidate for
Kopernicus," added core developer Lars Knoll."
