Name        : kdebase4
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 3.93.0
Release     : 4.fc7
URL         : http://www.kde.org/
Summary     : K Desktop Environment 4 - Core Files
Description :
Core runtime requirements and applications for the K Desktop Environment 4.
This package does not include the KDE 4 versions of applications which are
provided by KDE 3 because of file and configuration setting conflicts.
WARNING: This is a beta version. It probably has many bugs left.
Also, the API and ABI are NOT fully stable yet (soft freeze only).

Update Information:

This update contains KDE 4.0 (beta) development libraries. The following new
packages are provided:
* kdelibs4: KDE 4 libraries
* kdepimlibs: KDE 4 PIM libraries
* kdebase4: KDE 4 core runtime files
These packages can be used to develop, build and run KDE 4 applications within
KDE 3 or any other desktop environment.

The kdebase4 package also includes a beta version of the Dolphin file manager as
a technology preview. One known issue is that Dolphin currently fails to start
up when run from the KDE 3 menu, it works when run from Konsole. There may also
be other issues. If you need a stable version of Dolphin, please install the
d3lphin package, which is based on KDE 3 and can be safely installed next to

These packages are designed to:
* comply with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) and
* be completely safe to install in parallel with KDE 3, including the -devel
In order to achieve this, we made 2 changes to the -devel packages:
* the library symlinks are installed to /usr/lib(64)/kde4/devel,
* kconfig_compiler and makekdewidgets have been renamed kconfig_compiler4 and
  makekdewidgets4, respectively.
These changes should be completely transparent to KDE 4 applications using cmake
to build (the vast majority) because we also patched FindKDE4Internal.cmake to
match these changes.

Note that kdebase4 does NOT include the KDE 4 Desktop (kdebase-workspace, i.e.
Plasma, KWin version 4 etc.), which is still too incomplete and unstable for
daily use and which would conflict with KDE 3.

In addition, updated versions of:
* kde-filesystem, to include directories and RPM macros needed by KDE 4 and
* kdelibs (3.5.7), to remove the no longer needed package-level conflict with
  kdelibs4-devel from kdelibs-devel
are provided with this update.
