KDE 4.1 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 KDE 3 installation.
As many of you have probably found out, last Thursday, 24th, Canonical released the 8.04 version of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and all other variants.
Why didn’t I wrote any news about it (and any news in general for the last five days)? Simple: I rushed on the download an install. 😀
After few days from the last Beta version, and few days before the official release scheduled for the end of April, Canonical released the Release Candidate of both Ubuntu and Kubuntu.
London, UK April 14, 2008 – Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, today announced training for corporate and home desktop users to get started with Ubuntu.
Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron, is the next release of Kubuntu, scheduled to be released towards the end of April 2008. This release will introduce the future of desktop computing by incorporating the new KDE 4 desktop as well as providing continued maintenance and support for the KDE 3.5 desktop. With the news concerning the release of the KDE 4 desktop, it was decided by Canonical that Kubuntu 8.04 would not be a Long Term Support (LTS) release.
