As part of the KDE 4 hack week, which the KDE desktop team and KDE people working for SUSE are doing this week, we will do an informal and spontaneous openSUSE KDE IRC meeting tomorrow at 1600 GMT. Some possible topics are getting collected on the KDE Meetings wiki page, please join us if KDE on openSUSE interests you. â€” KDE 3.5.8 has been released today and we have unsupported packages available in the Build Service. The release of KDE 4.0 Beta 3, of course accompanied by packages in the KDE:KDE4 build service project, is expected later this week.
