KDE The KDE project has released the first release candidate for KDE 4.2. "The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of "Cilense", (a.k.a. KDE 4.2 Release Candidate), the only planned release candidate for the KDE 4.2 desktop. Cilense is aimed at testers and reviewers. It should provide a solid ground to report last-minute bugs that need to be tackled before KDE 4.2.0 is released. Reviewers can use this release candidate to get a first look at the upcoming KDE 4.2 desktop which provides significant improvements all over the desktop and applications. It is not recommended for everyday use, however."

Unofficial KDE 4.2-pre Debian repository

For those of you who are eager to try out the new KDE in your Debian SID + Experimental box (I suppose you already have KDE 4.1 from Experimental), there's an unofficial Debian repository at http://kde42.debian.net/ hosting svn builds of kde trunk. Those packages are built by the Debian KDE packaging team.

Instructions to install the packages are given on the page. The repository will be updated until KDE 4.2 is released, at this point it is very likely KDE 4.2 will go into Experimental.
