The 4.9 release is getting really close. This is surely the time to prepare a party. There will be many release parties all over the world. They’re being planned here: http://community.kde.org/Promo/Events/Release_Parties/4.9 One of them is in Berlin on August 4th. If you’re in Berlin you should come. Jos and Camila are kind enough to offer their home (again). Contributors, users and people from other free software projects are welcome. All you have to do is add your name to the wiki page. You can find more details on the wiki page. Looking forward to seeing you!
Oh and if you look at http://community.kde.org/Promo/Events/Release_Parties/4.9 and can’t find a party near you this is a sign you should start one yourself. It’s not hard. Tomaz has some tips.
