David, Darrell,

I am glad for your interest. I will be very glad if you test compilation on 
your distributions. I was hoping we could then coordinate the SRU release, 
including packages for various distributions. Source packages are not yet 
available as a tarballs, but current state are available in the GIT as a 
branch named v3.5.13-sru - see for example:

There are several packages on which I currently work to "cherry-picking" 
patches, which I consider as necessary == inadvert tqt changes and gcc 4.7 

[    ]   tdebindings
[=   ]   tdesvn
[=   ]   tde-style-qtcurve
[    ]   rosegarden
[    ]   tqscintilla
[    ]   python-tqt
[    ]   python-trinity
[    ]   libqt-perl

Then I must go also through the tde-packaging...

It would be good to incorporate potential other necessary patches before the 
official release I know that now I have to incorporate several new 
patches - for example fixes for PNG images. To them I get soon...

By the way: BasKet I liked. But I miss the possibility to copy the selected 
notes to the clipboard directly as text - not as links to files.
