The sources of KDE Software Compilation 4.4.90 (which is in fact Release Candidate 1 of the upcoming KDE 4.5) have been available on KDE’s ftp server for some days now.
There is still no official announcement from KDE team about this RC1 but it will without doubt appear soon on kde.org after the weekend.
Please note that this release candidate will likely still have bugs – if you find any please report them to bugs.kde.org so that we can expect a great 4.5 release in august.
You can download 4.4.90 from the server using http:
lftp -c “open http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/ ; mirror 4.4.90”
or using rsync (mind the dot at the end):
rsync -av rsync://alien.slackbook.org/alien-kde/4.4.90 .
Also next week, there will be a release of KDE SC 4.4.5 (the last in the 4.4 series) and if everything goes as planned, this should end up in slackware-current – meaning, I won’t have to build packages for 4.4.5.
