KDE The KDE team has announced the release of KDE 3.5.2, a maintenance release of the 3.5 series which provides corrections of problems reported using the KDE bug tracking system and greatly enhanced support for existing translations and new translations. For more details, check the changelog. Binary packages for some distributions are available, and the sources are too, obviously.

Actually packages are ready a few days before the official announcement so that distributors have time to prepare binaries for their distros.

Thom should know that better than anyone *cough fedora releases http://osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=14024 *

Nice of him to extend the courtesy of waiting for the announcement to KDE. Actually, he probably just isn't interested enough in KDE to refresh mirrors until the next release appears ;)

And it's not quite the same thing of course, couple days notice to make binaries vs a couple days notice for all the mirrors to come up.
