To: debian-kde@lists.debian.org


 KDE 4.0.3 will be released tomorrow, but it won't be upload to Debian.
 Instead, we, the KDE packagers, have started to work directly on KDE 4.1. We
 are currently uploading packages to experimental with  a trunk snapshot from
 KDE's subversion. They are those packages named 4.0.6X+svnXXXX

 This 4.0.6X packages include _big changes_ in some packages, specially new
 stuff that made some packages go to NEW first, the upgrade path from 3.5.9
 is not fully tested/fixed, and they are being uploaded for i386.
 So if you are using another arch different of i386, you will have to wait
 maybe 2 weeks or so for having packages for you arch, and if you are using
 i386 you still will have to wait packages be accepted in NEW and do not be
 surprised if they do not update fine.

 My personal piece of advise:

 a) if you are a 3.5.9 user waiting to test KDE 4, wait for at least a month
 and then we trust KDE 4 packages in experimental will be nice to install and
 KDE 4.1 will be nice to use as well.

 b) if you are a 4.0.2 user, wait at least 2 weeks.

 As always, pretty please only report bugs against pacckages in experimental
 when it is clearly a Debian packaging related bug, for bugs in KDE desktop
 itself, please use KDE's bugzilla.
