Stephan Kulow posted the following today on the Factory Mailing list:
“Bernhard’s tests say build908 is good enough for Milestone4, so I’m preparing
that one now without further delay for release on monday.”
You can get an early start on M4 testing by downloading “Build0908” iso files
from http://download.opensuse.org/factory/iso/. Included on the site are NET
install, Gnome Live, and KDE Live CDs for both 32- and 64-bit systems. There are
no DVD images on this site.
This is a pity because kdepim4 is broken in build 908 and kmail crashes while migrating the config files to 4.6.0-pre.
This was fixed upstream yesterday https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=257885
and added to the repository
this morning. I would guess that this will make it into the next factory build, and that this would be a more useful milestone as it could be tested in a working environment.
Build 0909 has been on factory for a couple of days, but other than the advance notification (that build 0908 is “likely” to be the build) there has been no final official notification as to which which M4 build (0908 ? 0909 ? ) will form the M4 baseline.
I’m waiting until the end of day today and until the M4 build is available directly on the development site (as opposed to my getting it from the factory repos) before install the baseline M4 build on a PC.
