The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to
announce the immediate availability of version of the Trinity
Desktop Environment. The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete
software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems,
intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is
free/libre software.

Almost a year in development and testing, this stable release update is
comprised of 141 bug fixes and 1,193 patches. This new release does not
introduce new features but is focused on stabilizing the 3.5.13 release. 
It should be a smooth update for everyone currently using TDE v3.5.13.

Bug fixes for the desktop, the TDE Menu, and many other applications have
been included. Additionally, localizations for many languages have been
improved. To learn about the highlights of this release, visit its

About TDE

The TDE project began as a continuation of the K Desktop Environment (KDE)
version 3. The name Trinity was chosen partly because the word means
"three" and TDE was formerly a continuation of KDE 3. Now its own desktop
environment project, it continues to gain features, fix existing bugs, and
provide a stable desktop to all.

The TDE project was founded by and is still led by Timothy Pearson.
Timothy is an experienced and skilled software developer and was the KDE
3.x coordinator of previous Kubuntu releases.

Note: The correct reference to the Trinity Desktop Environment is
"Trinity" or "TDE"; not "KDE3", "Trinity KDE3", "KDE3 Trinity", "KDE3
(Trinity)", or "Trinity (KDE3)". The Trinity Desktop Environment project
is not a continuation of KDE 3.5 by KDE e.V., which no longer supports the
KDE 3 series. Trinity is an independent fork using a separate developer
