Well, the cat is out of the bag, so i might as well own up to it: i
very recently started working for Sun Microsystems. I am very happy
about that, since I can now focus on doing what I love doing, which is
software and systems.

I will be working on Solaris' F/OSS software packages, for both the
SFW and the Companion CD consolidations, and not only on KDE, but also
on KDE's dependencies and required libraries. This means many other
libraries and packages, many of which are shared with JDS/GNOME.

This means that, KDE 3.5.5 will be on the Solaris Companion CD, along
with its dependencies and requirements. It also means that, in a
definite and foreseeable future, you will no longer have to deal with
the hideous packaging of /opt/fsw4sun. :-) And KDE e.V will no longer
have to host that thing on their servers' hard drives.

So, KDE Solaris is alive and well, and now even at Sun!
