Version 0.8 was the first version for KDE-4 / Qt-4, a nearly complete reimplementation.
Version 0.7 was the first one with recording support.
After the port from KDE-1 to KDE-2 (v0.5 to v0.6) Kwave has temporarily fallen back
to alpha state and some of the features of the old v0.5 had to come
back slowly, one by one.
However, the program already seemed to be useful for many people for most
The step from v0.5 to v0.6 was nearly a complete rewrite of the whole program and it's internal architecture! The main focus was on robustness and a clean design, not on the pure amount of features.
