4.0 Release Event Website

November 28, 2007

Hey everyone. We finally have a website up to discuss the release event due to the efforts of Ruphy, Sebas, Cornelius and others. A departure from our typical sites, don’t you agree? Is it the wrapping being slowly torn away from the anticipated 4.0 release? Is it the rising KDE sun in Mountain View? Only you can decide. The only thing for certain is that Sebas and others might be a little grumpy with me for the surprise site announcement (with small items like ‘KDE 4’ -> ‘KDE 4.0’ still to be tweaked).

I do in fact have more content and details on the Release Event in Mountain View for those interested in learning more about travel, lodging and itinerary. After some discussions with Google staff I’ll be updating the site this weekend (with help from people like Sebas that have SVN access). Expect a Dot story on the topic with an updated site. This information will also be emailed to all confirmed attendees.

Soon afterward, this site will also hold information about other great release events being planned around the globe/marble. The clock is ticking, so to speak. Only seven weeks until the event, can you believe it? If you still want to attend, just let me know. Do it. DO IT! Attendees should remember that they have been automatically booked for hotel the evenings of the 17th and 18th, unless otherwise noted (like local guests). Those that still need help with Visas, contact me immediately.

    Sweet! A prominently placed countdown would be cool, although a bit stereotyped i’d have to admit!
    rock on!

    The background is very nice. I couldn’t resist but to check if there was a sequence and there is … 🙂

    Will there be videos, slides, whatever available in the site afterwards?

    If you made the web page about 1/8th shorter, there wouldn’t be a need to a vertical scrollbar on Firefox 1024×768 resolution (at least on my computer).

    Now I *have* to play scorched earth..! 🙂

  5. I thought the ragged line was something like in Burning Bird blog, but showing number of commits each day. Would be cool if you can implement something like that 🙂
