It’s been a long time since I’ve last blogged about KDE, so let me bring some “fresh news”.
The Gentoo KDE team is getting ready to put the 4.2.0 release in the tree as soon as the tarballs are available. The ebuilds are already available in the kde-testing overlay and I’ve added yesterday the mask to the tree.
Anyone wishing to install or upgrade to the 4.2.0 release should read carefully the KDE 4.X guide. We’ll be reviewing this guide carefully to “smooth” the upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2.

PS – In case you don’t know how KDE releases work, you won’t be able to upgrade until the tarballs are officially released into the KDE mirrors. So don’t try to use the ebuilds in the overlay if you don’t have access to the tarballs and instead be sure to wait for them to hit the tree.
