This time of the release has come, when you have to suffer my
late-night writing skills. :)

Please send me your feedback!

KMyMoney announces release candidate for KDE4 platform

After a year of hard work on a version for the KDE4 platform, the
KMyMoney team is happy to announce the immediate available of the
first release candidate. Unlike previous versions, this one is
recommended for general use. The feedback provided by previous beta
releases make us confident that it is as stable and rock-solid as
previous stable versions.

Throughout this effort, our focus has been to maintain feature-parity
compared to the KDE3 stable version. We know that many of you keep
using KDE3 for the sole purpose of running KMyMoney, so we devised a
plan to produce a version for KDE4 as fast as possible and at the same
time keep the high level of quality that your financial data deserves.
Over the last 5 months, 4 beta versions were released, putting our
developers, packagers, and those of you brave enough to test it, under
a big stress. That has payed off, allowing us to uncover much of the
strength and weakness of this new platform, and even finding bugs on
the current stable version.

This release candidate is not the end, but an important milestone in
that plan. The final milestone will be the release of a final stable
version together with KDE SC 4.5 in August.

We did manage to add some new features along the way:
- Better documentation
- Works with the latest version of AqBanking
- Runs in all operating systems supported by KDE
- Runs natively on the KDE4 platform

A lot of effort has gone into finding and fixing bugs. However, we
need your feedback to make the stable release the best ever. Please
try it and let us know if you find errors, a missing feature or even
just annoyances.

Thank you!
