After another 6 months of hard work by all the Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and KDE developers, Kubuntu 9.10 the “Karmic Koala” has been released! There have been improvements in many areas from appearance to translations to network management to a general solidifying of the KDE 4 platform. See the release announcement for new features.
Thanks to all the developers! Go download! (preferably via BitTorrent)
