Social Media Offensive - and more BUZZ

Hi all,

We're almost there - the release team hasn't slept in days, the www team just went crazy (troy promised to blog about that) and the promo team is running around like the devil's on their heels.

Yes, the next major release of the KDE workspaces, applications and our development platform is just hours away.

And we now need you all to make a big splash. Of course we've been preparing things - but to really make this an event the whole IT world is aware of (and it should be), you all need to help out. Blog, dent, tweet. Digg, reddit, bookmark. Post pictures on flickr, screencasts on youtube or blip.tv. And submit the news to as many news sites as you can - especially the local news sites. The announcement is translated so make use of that (unfortunately, the feature guide is not, but feel free to summarize it of course).

And use KDE44 as tag, please, so things can easily be found!

You will be able to follow the buzz on the revamped buzz.kde.org and of course on our fresh homepage kde.org!

Lydia posted an email about the web stuff we'll be doing, help out if you can!

Exciting times, all, let's make this one rock like we've never rocked before!
