KDE KDE 4.0.0 has been released onto the world. "The KDE Community is thrilled to announce the immediate availability of KDE 4.0. This significant release marks both the end of the long and intensive development cycle leading up to KDE 4.0 and the beginning of the KDE 4 era." KDE 4.0 is the first release of "KDE 4", but take note that the developers have clearly stated that KDE 4.0 is not KDE 4, but more of a base release with all the underlying systems ready to go, but with still a lot of work to be done on the user-visible side. Download it from the KDE 4.0 info page. Update: Screenshots.

Will all the excellent KDE appz be available on the proprietory plattforms soon?

I really hope so. K3b on Mac and Windows would be great!

The avialability on any platform largely depends on developers on said platforms participating in the project.

For example there are quite active developer groups on BSDs and now also on OpenSolaris, which means those platforms have "their" KDE pretty much available instantly.

OSX and Windows groups currently have only very limited man power and it takes more time to discover all platform specific issues and fix them.
