With the second RC of KDE4.2 just released, now is a really important time to get involved in testing KDE 4.10.
During this release, due to changes based on feedback, two areas of KDE have undergone a significant change between Release Candidate 1 and 2. This isn’t typical, so to ensure the final release goes as smoothly as possible an extra release candidate is going to be created. This will delay the KDE 4.10 release, but it does help ensure that KDE 4.10 is the best ever.
As part of the KDE quality team, it’s now our task to make sure these changed areas still get the same level of coverage and testing. To help with this we’ve arranged a series of checklists covering all the items in the two modified areas.
Once you have RC2 installed, it would really help us if as many people as possible go through the checklists to check for any regressions.
As usual you can help test all the areas of KDE that have changed between KDE 4.9 and 4.10, or simply by using the release early and reporting back with any problems.
Thanks to everyone who has worked hard in testing so far. During the release phase is when developers are most attentitive to bug reports, and it really does make a difference.
