Last Sunday the KDE Bugsquad held a Krush day for KDE PIM applications. Our aim was to find bugs in KDE’s PIM applications, which will be released for the first time in the KDE4 series with KDE 4.1. About 10 people took part in the session (which was only announced on the day) and they found about 60 issues with the applications tested, including Kontact, KMail, Akregator. About a dozen of these bugs were fixed on the day, most impressively for KOrganizer, for which nearly all the bugs found are already fixed! Many thanks to all the people who helped out to make sure KDE PIM 4.1 is as stable and reliable as possible.
Due to the success of this Krush Day, the Bugsquad will host another KDE PIM Krush day on Sunday 8th June. More information about that will come soon, but for now, just put a big X in your diary whether you are a KDE developer, bug-triager or just enthusiastic user!

OK, so this really should have been announced before, but due to a combination of factors including my being offline for 2 days (and still on a very unreliable connection), it didn’t get announced.
Today will be the first of several days focused on finding bugs in KDE PIM 4.1 alpha/beta releases. KDE PIM (which includes Kotnact, KMail, Akregator, KNode and several other PIM apps) has not yet been released with KDE 4, and these days aim to spot as many bugs as possible in them so they can be fixed before the final release.
In order to take part, you will need a copy of KDE SVN trunk, or an aplha/beta/snapshot version of KDE 4.1. If you don’t have any of these, there is a Live DVD (about 900mb) created specially so you can join in with the Krush day anyway. Come and join us at #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net, and look at the Techbase page for where to detail bugs you find.
