Today sees the release of Kubuntu 8.10 featuring the KDE 4 desktop. The Kubuntu developers have been hard at work, bringing you the latest and greatest software the open source community has to offer. KDE 4 reworks your system with a major new revision of the desktop.
This Intrepid release lives up to its name by including many changes, but there are some features that are not yet available in KDE 4. If you would rather stay with what you know then remember that Kubuntu 8.04 is still fully supported, see KDE3-KDE4Migration and Is KDE 4.1 for you? for more information on deciding. You can try it first with the Kubuntu Intrepid Live CD to see for yourself whether or not it really is "for you".
KOffice 2 Beta 2 has been released. Packages are available for Kubuntu Intrepid in our kubuntu-members-kde4 personal package archive.
Amarok 2 beta 2 has been released and packages are available for Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron. These packages install to /usr/lib/kde4 and can be installed along side your existing Amarok 1.4 installation. Packages for the development version Kubuntu 8.10, the Intrepid Ibex, are available as well.
KOffice 2 Beta 1 has been released. Packages are available for Kubuntu Intrepid in our kubuntu-members-kde4 personal package archive.
The fifth Alpha release for Kubuntu Intrepid is available now for early testers. This release uses .kde instead of .kde4 for KDE settings so you will be unable to easily downgrade to KDE 3. See the release announcement for more information or download it directly.
