Following Qt 4.6.2, uploaded a couple of weeks ago, KDE 4.4.3, has
finally found its way to unstable in the last 48 hours.
Given KDE 4.5.0 is not expected until August, it is likely the next
point release, 4.4.4, will be the KDE version included in next Debian
stable, Squeeze. What this means: go and update to 4.4.3, test, and when
you find a bug, please, follow this
If you are lazy to read it: report upstream bugs at the KDE Bugzilla and
report the packaging/integration bugs in the Debian BTS. When in doubt,
you have the Debian KDE mailing
list, that is being successful so
far in maintaining a good signal-noise ratio.
I would like highlight the drop in the open bugs in the BTS experimented
in the last 2-3 months, I published this graph in February:
And look at the situation now:
This is mainly due to the great work of Eckhart Wörner. Also there is
other people who contributed to it more modestly, a big thank you to all
As you can see in the second graph, there are less than 1000 bugs open
now in the BTS, they are still too much and time has taught us it is
very easy going over 1000 again, so we still welcome more volunteers
looking at bugs.
If you are not the bugsquasher type, you can write HTML and you do some
IRC, we also need somebody to help us reorganize a bit the pkg-kde
website. I will help you personally
on this task, but it is good if you can lurk by IRC and you are not
scared to share your doubts with the rest of the team there.
Finally, I promise I will publish something about the status of
KOffice pre-2.2 in Debian, but I still can
not say whether it will be in Squeeze.
