let's hope in a Christmas’s gift!
anyway, usually no new version came out before qt-kde repo is used. Till now this did not happen.. it is not a good signal. It would be nice if devs write just a blog post or two to say "Hey, we're working on it!" or "we have problem splitting packages and building the dependencies". Maybe someone could be more interested in supporting them, or even joining the team. I think they're too much isolated, isn't this the era of communication?

I would be happy too if there would be a bit more information in general.

as reported here if you want to check how progress is going on you can watch all git commits for:
kdebase-workspace
kd4-libs

for me it is not that easy to understand what does this mean. Anyway someone else could find it interesting.

Given that they started working on 4.7 between 13 and 5 days ago...we're at the beginning, in my opinion.

You can compile 4.7.1 yourself in the following order:

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg ... ;a=summary

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg ... ;a=summary

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg ... ;a=summary

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg ... ;a=summary

...

I think the packages will appear on qt-kde for the 4.7.2 release (this is just my opinion - i don't have any inside information)

The November 2011 issue of Linux Format magazine (UK) DVD has Chakra running KDE 4.7 in live mode. It's fun to try. From my ordinary user standpoint,
it is not a huge change. But it ran well on my laptop. I have no intention of installing Chakra. Aptosid continues to be my distro of choice.Smile

It's really snappy Smile. I used debianizations from debian's git repository and pulled kdelibs/runtime/workspace from KDE/4.7 branch (4.7.2 is already tagged - that's why i have 4.7.2)


I'm currently in the process of building entire KDE 4.7.1 (amd64), if there are interested parties i can upload it when i'm finished Wink

šumski: instead of building your own, you should get involved with the debian-qt-kde team and bring 4.7 to all debian users. Smile

šumski: Compiling KDE?? That must be nightmare. I have troubles compiling a widget Very Happy
However I would also suggest you cooperate with other devs. That would be awesome.

To compile all of KDE including ancillary apps would take days and be a real PITA.

However it would be good to work with the debian devs and get/give feedback

GNOME's even worse to build I bet Shocked

It's not really THAT hard - except for the bindings - these are a nightmare (i don't plan to build them)
Components that take the longest time to compile are kdelibs, kde-workspace and kdepim.

I already did a backport of 4.6 for squeeze - qt takes a REALLY long time to compile.

Marble won't build - it complains something about qtlocation's cmake, so i probably won't build it.

So far i have:
akonadi/
kate/
kde4libs/
kdeartwork/
kde-baseapps/
kdebase-runtime/
kde-graphics/
kdemultimedia/
kdepimlibs/
kdepim-runtime/
kdeplasma-addons/
kde-wallpapers/
kde-workspace/
konsole/
meta-kde/
oxygen-icons/
pkg-kde-tools/
prison/
soprano/

UPDATE:
got also:
kdepim/
kdesdk/
kdetoys/
kdewebdev/



If i find something interesting, if will for sure notifiy the devs about it

Are you using kdesrc-build zu compile KDE? I do not manage to compile KDE now for some months because of some strange dependencies.

E.g. I think that the kde-workspace package requires kactivities. But kactivities does not compile because of this error:
      Code:

Linking CXX shared module ../../../lib/activitymanager_plugin_dummy.so
[ 48%] Building CXX object service/CMakeFiles/activity-manager.dir/activity-manager_automoc.cpp.o

make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

The configure step of kde-workspace does end with an error, but it does not tell which ressource is missing:
      Code:
