a friendly reminder: the first KDE4 Krush day where we concentrate on cleaning up bugs and annoyances in kde4 starts at 09:00 UTC Saturday Nov 3rd in #kde4-krush on irc. be there or be square! (oh yeah, baby, a classic 1980s throw down)
anyone with a kde4 install is encouraged to show up to help identify issues. be prepared to apply patches and test fixes, though as this is not a bitch fest but a patch fest. the difference is critical. ;)
anyone with kde4 coding fu is doubly encouraged to show up to help write those patches and triage the issues. artists are also encouraged to join us to work out art related issues that may crop up.
in completely unrelated news, my friend Andy threw out a new release of the pantheon cms, version 0.9.0. it has lots of new goodies and bugfixes and the march towards 1.0 can begin. i'm hoping he opts for a time based release schedule from here on out. interestingly, the release process took ~15 minutes: he tagged the tarball, installed it, brought up a new site from scratch with it (all done with cute little helper scripts so one doesn't actually do any real work), and uploaded it to the website via the admin control panel (which automatically listed the new download on the right pages, etc, thanks to the cms) and was done. neat.
