Happy days are here! Thanks, Boo! And if you need somebody to update a blog or work on some documentation or a wiki or something, let me know. I'm game, and I'm sure some of the others on this thread are too.

I hope this release goes gold!

Hummm I'm starting to feel bad vibrations... No news on Daryna KDE CE, no news on Debian CE, no news on XFCE CE, no news on Fluxbox CE, horrible news on E17... I hope I'm just being paranoid :cry: :cry:

You surely are paranoid ;-)

Kde ce will come - when it's ready. OK, it's a bit late, but better late and good than soon and bad... I trust them to release a stable, rock solid mint kde...

Yep you are!
I think it was only a week or two ago that the KDE CE 044 was released, but if you're like me, and visit this forum 80 times a day, a week seams like an eternity.

Guys, I'm pretty sure the stable release will be a few clicks away from within the latest beta whenever it's released. If you're using the beta, according to Boo, it was only a couple of minor bugs away form going gold. I'm sure when the final update is released, the changes will be hardly noticeable. This beta cooks, baby. I'm calling it done! Anybody up for a release party??? :lol:

I'm loving the beta also! The only problem I have is, after a fresh install, when I upgrade the packages it tells me to I lose my Volume on-screen-display. My laptop volume buttons still change the volume, but the graphical volume display no longer appears. If anyone knows how to get it back, that would be great!

well I have uploaded Daryna stable.
there are only 2 changes.
I put in the USB ntfs fix for hal. found here: http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... 109&t=8993
changed some compiz defaults to make it more KDEish and fix known bugs.

so there is no need to download/reinstall the stable edition if you have already installed beta 44.
this may be good news for some and bad for others.

there were not many repeatable/valid bugs reported.
but most were general linux/ubuntu bugs that could not be fixed easily or in a timely manner.
I have wasted enough time looking into fixes and i know you all want the stable out.

some bugs have already been fixed in the next ubuntu so mint kde 5 already looks even better.
time for me to start looking into improvements for mint kde 5.

Cheers Boo

:mrgreen: Great news! And on a Friday even, I'll get to have the whole week-end to play with it!
Thanks Boo, we all know how much work you put in this so we have the best of Mint and KDE... :wink:
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.

remember exploder has to test the stable first before it is released.
I will be uploading the CD size iso tonight once it gets the chop chop.

now people it is time to start thinking about what you would want in or changed in mint kde 5.
but I'll start a new thread about that soon.

Right, I had forgotten the "Exploder stage". Patience is a virtue, I guess. :wink:
