(c) 2005-2008 by The Krusader Krew, All Rights Reserved


Welcome to the second Krusader Newsletter of 2008 with news, views and
information about recent
developments and ongoing issues in the Krusader project. Our aim is to
inform of recent developments,
give a preview of upcoming features and to give our loyal users a
direct line to the Krusader Krew.

Krusader 1.90.0 "Power Stone" released

Krusader 1.90.0 was the final release [1] for the KDE3 series. The
higlights are many useractions,
serveral bugfixes, compatiblity from KDE3.2 to KDE3.9 and GCC 4.3
No further changes are planned since we put all our efforts now on the
Krusader 2.0.0-beta1 release for KDE4.
Thanks everyone in all the years who has contributed to this project!


The Krew is growing
We'd like to welcome our newest krew member Vaclav Juza [2].
He is already a few years around with contributing patches and
offering general help,
now he has joined officially our team. Welcome!


CVS is closed down in favor of SVN
The KDE3 branch is been merged into Subversion and the CVS service is
been closed [3].
People who like to download the KDE3 branch need to use from now the
Subverion command

$ svn co

With the above command you will download the sourcecode of
Krusader-1.90.0 + some minor changes.
We don't expect that new code will be committed.


Krusader-2.x for KDE4
Krusader-2.x works better and better on KDE4.0 ! We put all our
efforts now on the
Krusader 2.0.0-beta1 "Phoenix Egg" release for KDE4. A screenshot can
be downloaded [4],
it's made on Kubuntu 8.04 (KDE 4 Remix) and shows that we have left
the third stone towards the fourth stone.

Most of the qt3/kde3 code is removed now and replaced into pure kde4/qt4 code.
Thanks to everyone who contributes at this port! If you like, you can
follow the developments at our
devel-mailinglist [5] and on the krusader-commits mailinglist [5].

Compiling Krusader is not so difficult, more detailed instructions can
be found in the INSTALL file [6].
