Thats great. Unfortunately we don't have a changelog yet, we don't even have a 
proper release planning. I would hope that we can improve and comply to the 
pre-existing process for Alpha1 (the next milestone). 

For the snapshot we don't need to do the full round, just a dot story will be 

However, that leaves us with the key question I already received: 

- What are the important changes in this new snapshot?

For me, it is almost 4 months of development with various smaller milestones: 
  * kdelibs has been cleaned up a lot, kdecore is X11 dependency free
  * non-X11 builds have improved a lot
  * MVC concepts have been introduced in some areas of kdelibs
  * sonnet has been merged
  * dolphin has entered kdebase

There are probably quite some other things that I'm missing, please help to 
complete the list.
