finally 4.7.0

Weeks after we started, we finally managed to get out the KDE 4.7.0 release. Only after TheOneRing asked me several times about a new release (either a last 4.6 release or the 4.7.0 one), I finally gave in and told him what I know about the KDE on Windows release process... We needed quite a while to get most packages building again, very likely because our buildserver was stopped already some months ago due to lack of maintainance time. Also the splitting of the kdeedu & kdegraphics packages had not been done when we did our last release (KDE SC 4.5). But now we added new buildscripts and fixed our packaging scripts so now we welcome more packages to be split up (kdesdk or kdegames perhaps?).

Since I couldn't put everything into the release announcement, I want to add some more stuff over here:
  • Our release contains the latest version of Digikam (which is 2.0.0)
  • Also, there are now both skrooge and kmymoney available.
  • besides the kdepim package, we also ship a beta version of zanshin, a todo application based on akonadi.
  • a small but still nice scanning application is skanlite, which just works...
  • also contained are Amarok 2.4.3, Kile, Quassel, Konversation, KRegExpEditor and KRecipes.
If you want to have other packages available, ask us and we will try to make that possible. Also, if you are maintainer of an application and you would like to see your application available on windows, we can surely make that happen.
