The fourth release candidate of the KDE Kolab client is now available for download at
This release is almost entirely a bugfix release, and there are now only minor annoyances known to us. It is likely that this will be the final release candidate.
Please report all bugs or annoyances found to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kolab client is nearing release. Klaviatura, a simple experimental on-screen keyboard/accessibility concept was added. Kdevelop cvs service is improved. Kivio gets loads of new stencils. Konqueror now can create a bookmark folder from open tabs, and now opens a page in a new tab when called from other applications. The Yahoo and Jabber IM protocols are improved in Kopete. Kgpg is moved into the Kdeutil package, now included in the Kde distributions.
Bo Thorsen announced a pre-release of the Kolab client. This is the client portion of the groupware solution being developed for German Federal Agency for IT Security, BSI. The kroupware architecture paper (PDF)(html) describes the client and server setup. If you want more information, see the Kroupware documentation page. It contains links to a technical description, and Kolab server administration.
Here are some statistics from the last week. I will eventually be making this regular feature of the digest. I would appreciate some feedback. There were 160 people who did 1164 commits to the Kde repository, modifying 110265 lines. And the top ten in two categories, modified modules, and most commits.
Suggestions on other statistics that you would like to see are welcome. Some things I will probably add are the weekly stats from bugs.kde.org and the statistics from the kde i18n page. Would it be best to create a statistic page, or have the statistics featured at the top or the end of the Digest? And yes the table is sucky, and hopefully the layout will be better. Statistics are quite meaningless and open to perversion, which of course makes them more interesting.
