Jul 11, 2002, 17:52 (24 Talkback[s])

"The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.1 alpha1, the first development release of a significant feature upgrade for KDE 3 (screenshots). KDE 3 is the third generation of KDE's free, powerful and easy-to-use Internet-enabled desktop for Linux and other UNIXes. KDE 3.1, scheduled for final release in October 2002, will provide substantial improvements to the KDE desktop experience. As the KDE 3 API is frozen for binary compatibility, KDE 3.1 will be binary compatible with KDE 3.0.

"KDE 3.1 alpha1 ships with the core KDE libraries, the base desktop environment, and hundreds of applications and other desktop enhancements from the other KDE base packages (PIM, administration, network, edutainment, development, utilities, multimedia, games, artwork, and others).

"The primary goal of the 3.1alpha1 release is to engage experimental KDE users who would like to comment on the current progress or who simply prefer to enjoy some of the many great new KDE 3.1 features now. Instructions for maintaining a KDE 3.1 alpha installation side-by-side with a stable KDE release are available here..."
