 2009-04-01 0.8.1 released (this is not a joke!)

This is the second release of the Qt4-Version of
KPorts, grab it from the Downloads-Page[1]!
It comes with new artwork, fixes many bugs,
provides a new and better search and has some
non-visible changes that will ease introduction of
package-handling; see the Changelog[2] for more
By default KPorts will now pull in
kdebase-runtime, because it wants kdesu and the
oxygen-icon-theme. This doesn't mean that KDE is
required, it just makes KPorts look better and
automatically ask for root-cridentials upon
starting. If you don't use KDE, be sure to "make
config" and read the post-install-message.
