Subject: [gentoo-announce] KDE 3.0.1 released for Gentoo Linux
Date: Fri, 24 May 2002 11:23:16

It's with great honor and pleasure that the Gentoo Linux KDE team (danarmak 
and me) present you KDE 3.0.1!

*crowd goes wild*

As official KDE packager, we now get the tarballs a few weeks before the 
actual release, which gives us a lot more time to test and tweak the ebuilds, 
before releasing them to the broad Gentoo public. 
Ofcourse, any problems you have with the ebuilds should be reported asap to 
Danarmak (danarmak@g.o) and/or to me (verwilst@g.o).

For the first time ever, (as some of you might have noticed already), we have 
a dir on, where our i586 and i686 binary packages will be put.. 
Because of some time-related issues, our binaries aren't ready yet, so 
everybody with a little bit of time on their hands, and a nice fast CPU, ...,  
should contact me, to discuss the creation of the binaries (with specific USE 
flags and CFLAGS). Or, you can always sponsor me so i can buy a faster pc 
myself ;o) *hint*

KDE 3.0.1 is primarily a translation/bugfix release for KDE 3.0, which shipped 
in early April. In addition, KDE 3.0.1 offers a number of performance and 
usability enhancements. For an extended list of changes since KDE 3.0, please 

Enjoy it, and thanks for using KDE! :o)
