KDE 4 Beta 2 released today

KDE 4.0 continues to edge closer to completion with today's announcement of the Beta 2 release. Improvements have been made to Bluetooth support and blogging functions, and a freeze is in place so developers can begin working on bug fixes. Beta 2 also includes KOffice 2.0 Alpha 2 and a complete overhaul of remote desktop client KRDC.

Developer Sebastian Kügler says about 10,000 man-hours have gone into the codebase since the last beta release just over a month ago, thanks to a "very healthy" KDE community.
