KDE SC 4.4 is the fourth feature release for KDE SC 4. All dates given here are subject to revision, but we will try our best to stick to them if possible. The KDE Release Team is acting as the coordinator for the 4.4 release.

All deadlines are due 23:59 UTC, but if you need a few more hours, notify someone from the release team.
