Here is a composite screenshot for the announcement
and a new version of the draft.

This one has a better structure, I feel.

> -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
> KMyMoney releases second beta for KDE4 and maintenance version for KDE3
> -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
> The KMyMoney Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of
> version 3.96 of KMyMoney. This is the second beta release for the KDE4
> platform, after only 1 and a half of months of hard work, stabilizing
> and fixing bugs found during the first beta release.
> This version is still considered beta and not recommended for general
> use. As with the previous version, the intention is to get feedback
> from the community and find those issues that are not immediately
> apparent.
> Some of the improvements included in this release are:
> - Compatibility with KDE SC 4.4, after an unfortunate bug in our
> previous release that made it impossible to compile in that setup
> - Better integration with the Qt4 version of AqBanking, and an
> arrangement with AqBanking to have the Qt4 version more easily
> available
> - Integration with KDE Calendar libraries, for a better local holiday support
> - Improved handling of GPG-related errors
> - Charts have been improved and several features which were missing in
> the previous release have been added back, including some that were
> not present in the KDE3 version
> - Over 30 bugs have been fixed for this release alone and only 8 bugs
> remain open at this point. We thank the community for the reports and
> we expect to see more reports (and hopefully more fixes) after this
> release
> - Several custom widgets have been ported to be fully Qt4-native. This
> means not only an aesthetic improvement, but also a cleaner and more
> maintainable code, which has already helped us solve some bugs along
> the way. Plans are already being laid out to extend this effort to all
> the remaining widgets in subsequent releases.
> - Better build management, thanks to the feedback provided by the
> packagers of many distributions and platforms
> - Documentation is now available in Italian and a Valencian Catalan
> translation is available for the user interface.
> For this and coming releases, at least until hitting a stable version,
> we have adopted a quick release cycle, comprised of 4 weeks devoted to
> the big changes and fixes, and 2 weeks to stabilizing and translating.
> We believe this will help us find bugs more quickly and improve the
> feedback, while still having enough time to work on bugs and new
> features. This means you can expect a new release 6 weeks from now,
> unless a blocking issue gets in the way.
> For those still using the KDE3 platform version, the team has also
> released version 1.0.3. This maintenance release contains some fixes
> and improvements we found during the development of the KDE4 version
> and backported to it.
