KDE PIM is a package that contains personal information management tools.

The KDEPIM team develops the main application Kontact with all its plugins like KMail, KNode, KOrganizer, KAddressbook, Akregator, KJots and others.

To join the team, simply email the kde-pim mailing list, and join the irc:// IRC channel.



Much of the infrastructure of KDE PIM has been moved to kdepimlibs module as a framework for all KDE applications. Therefore we have two main modules within the KDE SVN: kdepim and kdepimlibs. The latter contains code that provides public APIs.

Current development focus as of January 2009 is on the Akonadi service and porting existing applications to Akonadi and KMime and other frameworks.

If you're looking into starting KMail development, have a look at the list of KMail junior jobs.


The KMail handbook is currently being rewritten, for more information look at the documentation wiki page.
