Possible (not sure) early kde 4.1 freeze

Hi,

Browsing the kde release-team list archive I found a thread about the freeze
dates for kde 4.1. See especially this message:
http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/release-team/2007-December/001269.html
Nothing looks firmly decided yet, but they are considering a feature freeze in
March 2008.

I thought that I would notify these two lists for the following reasons:
-Vladimir, I remember you asked when would be the 4.1 feature freeze would be,
I answered “not before may”, so you see, I was wrong.
-Marcus, Carsten, and the rest of the avogadro team: it looks like the
avogadro integration for kalzium 4.1 might have to be done a bit earlier than
I expected. I should also add, I’ll be away during March, so I won’t be able
to help at that time.

Cheers,

Benoit

I think Avogadro should aim to have an API/ABI freeze for Avogadro 1.0
in early 2008, so I think that fits fine. Certainly many things are
already done in libavogadro, so we don’t need to rush.

One bit that we should do for Kalzium is to have some of the plugins
statically linked to libavogadro. For example, the navigate tool, the
draw tool, and the wireframe and balls-and-sticks engines should
always be available. This should help minimize the questions about
"why don’t I see anything." At the very least, libavogadro would give
you minimal functionality if the rest of the plugins don’t load.

Cheers,
