Hi everybody,

today I uploaded the so called "first try" of 4.2 into [testing]. Those 
packages are not the final one yet, but damn close. There are only two known 
upstream showstoppers; which will be fixed by new packages soon. See 

On our site only mysql is blocking a release to [extra]: 
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/12798 In addition to this kde-l10n-et seems 

So please take the chance and check those packages. An update from 4.1 should 
be quite smooth. And even if you hated KDE 4.1, give 4.2 a try; it really 
rocks. :-)

If you notice any regression, showstopper or problems during the update, 
please report them.

Packages for x86_64 should be available on your favourite mirror soon; Andrea 
will build i66 packages tomorrow.
