A quick update on where we stand, release-PR-wise. The release announcement itself is 
done, and now being translated by various local teams, the first translations are 
already trickling in. I've sent a scoop (announcement text, screenshots, screencasts) 
out to our press two days ago, so that those people get some time to prepare their 
coverage, there was some feedback that it's useful already -- good. 

Meanwhile, Lydia and Alexandra are preparing our social networks campaign. will again feature a micro-blogging lifestream. (I'm not 100% up to date 
about the status here, but assume "on schedule").

The webteam is cracking away at the new website, which will be released shortly 
before the 4.4.0 release, so we're getting it all in a whole new fresh look, and what 
is more important: with a lot of updated, rewritten and better structured content 
around it. 

We're also still working on a more detailed visual feature guide, so people who want 
more in-depth, from the source information about KDE 4.4 can get some. The text is 
mostly there (g-docs), it's being html-ified and brushed up now.

I think things are looking rather good. Thanks everybody involved for the hard work!
