We the FreeBSD KDE Team are happy to let you know KDE SC 4.4.0 was
released few mins ago, and we’re ready for a public test. Before
you ask we don’t want to put KDE 4.4.0 in the ports tree before
FreeBSD 7.3 was released.

It would be nice to get the new version installed prior to the release
of FreeBSD-7.3, IMHO.  Unless I am drastically wrong, installing the
new version will require a massive update of libraries, etc, similar to
the recent 'jpeg' update. It would make for a much cleaner update to
the new FreeBSD version if this procedure preceded the update rather
than postdated it. However, with the 'freeze' now in effect, there
obviously is not chance of that happening.
