KDE dedicates 4.1 release to Uwe Thiem
The KDE development team yesterday released KDE 4.1, dedicating the release to Uwe Thiem who died earlier this month.
In the release notes for the 4.1 release the KDE team writes:
“The KDE community dedicates this release to Uwe Thiem, a long-time contributor to KDE who passed away recently after a sudden kidney failure. The death of Uwe came totally unexpected and as a shock to his fellow contributors. Uwe has, quite literally until the last days of his life contributed to KDE, not only in the form of programming. Uwe also played an important role in educating users in Africa about Free Software. With Uwe’s sudden death, KDE has lost an invaluable part of its community and a friend. Our thoughts are with his family and the ones he left behind.”
