KDE SC 4.7 approaches with RC2 release
The KDE.org developers have issued a second release candidate (RC2) of version 4.7 of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC). The development team is now focused on finding and addressing any last-minute "show stopper" (major) bugs, as well as completing translations and documentation. Users are asked to test the release and report any bugs that they find. The final release of KDE SC 4.7.0 is scheduled for 27 July 2011.
Further details can be found in the official release announcement; at the time of writing, the KDE SC 4.6.95 Info Page has yet to be published. Source code for self-compilation is available to download from the project's web site. KDE is licensed under a combination of the LGPLv2, BSD, MIT and X11 licences for core libraries and the GPLv2 or GPLv3 for applications. The latest stable release is KDE SC 4.6.5, a maintenance update to the 4.6 branch from earlier this month.
