rekonq 0.2

Last weekend Orcan Ogetbil finished the review on rekonq (thanks again!). rekonq is a new web browser designed for KDE. It’s small, light-weight, built with Qt and based on WebKit. Here’s a screenshot:

Currently it’s queued for -testing for F-10 [1] and F-11 [2] and can be installed from rawhide right away. Just a simple “yum install rekonq” will do the trick for rawhide users. As soon as it gets pushed for F-10 and F-11 you could use “yum install rekonq –enablerepo=updates-testing”. And people who can’t wait for it to get pushed, could grab it from Koji [3]. Just download the RPM and install it the way you prefer.

This has been my first real packaging challenge and I expected to know more than I did. Anyway it has been quite a learning experience and I’m pretty sure any following releases / packages will go a lot smoother. 🙂
