KDE year 2008 review

Aaron Seigo reviews the year 2008 in terms of KDE activities.

2008 will undoubtedly be remembered most often as the year we moved from the era of KDE3 into that of KDE4. The 4.0 release was made in January with an accompanying release event at Google’s HQ in California, USA. While 4.0 was a widely misunderstood release, it was also the release that set the pace for the rest of the year … and what a pace it was.

But he does not only looks backwards, he provides insight to the future of KDE

We’re still a technology project, of course, and 2009 will see the release of both 4.2 and 4.3. KDE 4.2 is already shaping up to be a truly remarkable release, quite possibly the best KDE we’ve ever put out there. KDE 4.3 will undoubtedly be yet another leap up the slope towards user interface greatness, and that should be happening right around the time of Akademy this year. Such timing!
