    The KDE project have just released KDE 3.1 RC2 to the public for testing, with bugfixes over revious versions.
    At the moment it is only being distributed in source form here
    It's possible this may be the last RC before we see KDE3.1 go final.

    Thanks! :)

    BTW, what version of KDE are you using with Slack 8.1?

    None at the moment, various troubles etc have lead me to format and re-install windows about 5 or 6 times in the past month :p
    So i'm waiting for Slack 9.0 to go final before i re-install a linux o/s on here (After FreeBSD screwed everything royally :) my own fault that one tho...)
    So hopefully slack9 will include a final release of KDE3.1 and all will be well :p

    Thats the great thing about slackware, it uses source packages instead of specific packages such as deb's or rpm's not only do you get more on the CD this way, you also always get the latest package releases.
