Transition to KF5 almost done: Zanshin 0.4rc1 is out

We recently released a first beta of our Qt5 port. Today, we are happy to announce the immediate availability of Zanshin 0.4rc1 (aka 0.3.91).

We're getting closer to the first stable release ported to Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5. This 0.4rc1 release is the result of the testing of our previously released beta. It mainly focuses on bug fixing and other quality improvements. In particular we did a few subtle adjustments to the GUI to make it more visually pleasing. We also fixed a couple of integration issues with KRunner and action shortcuts which were due to the porting.

As usual, you can grab 0.4rc1 while it is fresh! You can download the sources obviously, which is the best way to have something up to date but a bit more involving. Packages are available for openSUSE Tumbleweed from the home:ervin repository, give it a bit of time for other distributions to catch up.

Now we're waiting a bit for your feedback. We have exactly one bug left in our list for which a fix is in the work. If nothing else shows up we won't need a 0.4rc2 and next one will be the final 0.4.0!
