Spread the love

K Desktop Environment is a popular desktop environment for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. KDE comes with a standard desktop including fifteen applications such as a Personal Information manager (PIM), programs for multimedia, administration and network management, games, etc. The first release candidate of KDE 3.5 has been kicked out by the developers with the following announcement:


KDE 3.5 is about to be finished, so we prepared a first release candidate.We want to have it tested as much as possible, so please test if possible. This release identifies itself in allmost all places already as version 3.5 and so do the tarballs file names.

You can download the release candidate sources from at /src

You can also use Konstruct to help you build the RC1 from sources. Get it from

Because of the short timeframe for the release candidates we don’t give the distributors a head start of one week for binary packages. Binary packages appear at – so far Novell/SUSE has provided some and Kubuntu will add theirs during the weekend.

Thanks for your help in reporting bugs and giving feedback so far.
