LinuxPR: KDE developer meeting supported by SuSE and Caldera

The KDE Team is happy to announce that the second KDE
developer meeting will take place from 7th to 10th of October 1999
at the University of Erlangen, Germany.
Thanks to the main
sponsors, Caldera Systems Inc. and SuSE GmbH, about 50 KDE core
developers from all over the world will be able to come together
and work on the future development of KDE.”

“According to Waldo Bastian, KDE core developer, “KDE is being
developed by a large group of volunteers from all over the world.
This event is a unique opportunity to meet the other developers.
Although we are in constant contact via Internet, most of us have
never met each other in person. During the meeting we hope to
define the roadmap for the next major release of KDE which is
planned for the first half of the next year. Besides that, it will
be great fun!”

“The event has been made possible with the financial help of
Linux distributors SuSE and Caldera. SuSE Chairman Roland Dyroff
about SuSE’s involvement “SuSE is very commited to the development
of KDE. Thanks to KDE, Linux is quickly becoming a viable
alternative on the Desktop market. By supporting events like this
we make sure that the KDE Team can continue its marvelous work in
an even faster pace.”
