Release rhythms:

  • Qt: Trolltech has its own release cycles for Qt.
  • KDE: released with KDE (1 or 2 per year).
  • KOffice: released with KOffice (1 per year or even less).
  • Extra: Each program has its own release cycle.
  • L10N: the translations are released with the corresponding programs.
  • Web: web sites are normally synchronized every half-an-hour.
  • Never: these modules are never released.

Most Basic System

TODO (In short: the most basic system is made of Qt, arts, kdelibs, kdebase. With koffice, it makes a minimal system for working with KOffice. ???Recommended minimal: add kdegraphics and kdepim???


Qt-copy is a convenience to avoid to have to patch the official Qt release. (Note: it is not a fork.) Nevertheless KDE works with official Qt versions and also with Qt snapshots (except major bugs of course). Using snapshots is not recommended for using a stable KDE.


TODO (in short: the KIOSK mode allows to forbid users to change certain settings in KDE.)




TODO (in short: this is the module contatining the administrative stuff of KDE. kde-common/admin is mapped in all/most modules.)


This was the old sandbox for KDE developers. It is in the process of being replaced by the kdeplayground modules.


TODO (in short: these modules are the sandboxes for developers. Programs here might not work.)


TODO (in short: the programs here are too good to be in kdeplayground but not good or stable enough to be in kdeextragear or even in the KDE release itself.)


The kdeextragear modules contains stable applications that are not released with KDE but that have their own release shedule.


TODO: (in short: write protect by default. The www/developer.kde.org might be interesting to download to have the info offline.)
