Sun, 04 Dec 2011 17:17:04
we're about to stabilize KDEPIM-4.7 for the first time (last stable KDEPIM
suite is 18.104.22.168). Below is a news item for that, which I'd like to get out
in 48hours as long as there are no major problems.
The news item can also be found (in possibly updated form) at
Please send your feedback and improvements!
@KDE: please also help me doublecheck if the "Display-If-Installed: <kde-
base/akonadi-4.5" is correct (basically I want to display the news item only
if someone has kdepim-4.4 installed).
Title: Stabilization of KDE 4.7.3 including KDEPIM
Author: Andreas K. Huettel <firstname.lastname@example.org>
We are pleased to announce the upcoming stabilization of KDE 4.7.3.
In general the upgrade of KDE from 4.6.5 to 4.7.2 should be unproblematic.
However, if you are using the KDEPIM application suite (i.e., akregator,
blogilo, kmail, knode, kontact, korganizer, and others) where the stable
version so far was 22.214.171.124, please be aware of the following:
The stable upgrade from KDEPIM 126.96.36.199 to KDEPIM 4.7.2 is a MAJOR upgrade
with potential for major breakage. Therefore we will *try* to keep
and support the old, so-far stable KDEPIM 188.8.131.52 as long as possible.
If you *dont* want to upgrade your KDEPIM yet but keep the old version,
please download the following file and add it into your
If you decide to upgrade, please have a look at the upgrade guide first:
