Hello Everyone,

Pending the re-authorization of my ssh keys for uploading to the KDE 
ftp server, i am ready to start uploading the KDE 3.1.4 Solaris 
packages built with Forte 8 as early as Sunday night New York time.

This binary release is a major overhaul of the location of the 
required libraries. The new location is under /opt/fsw4sun (which 
stands for Free SoftWare For Sun). I chose to name it this way for 
two main reasons:

- its contents is a very eclectic collection of GPL'd libraries
- i searched on Google for /opt/fsw4sun and fsw4sun and nothing came 
up. I figured there is a high probability that this location will not 
conflict with anyone else's.

All the libraries in this package release (KDE and required, including 
QT 3.2.2) were built with Sun Forte 8.

There are a lot of improvements in this release. I will not divulge 
them now, i'll leave them as a surprise. :-)
