<a href="http://www.webupd8.org/2012/02/kubuntu-to-become-community-only-ubuntu.html">As was announced</a> back in February, Canonical will no longer fund Johnathan Riddell's work on Kubuntu after the 12.04 release. Well, it looks like Kubuntu has a new sponsor! <!--more-->

As stated on the <a href="http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-to-be-sponsored-by-blue-systems">Kubuntu blog</a>:

<blockquote>Kubuntu will have a new sponsor in <a href="http://blue-systems.com/">Blue Systems</a> from the 12.10 cycle starting in May. Kubuntu is a community led project to create a KDE flavour as part of Ubuntu. Our sponsor since it started has been Canonical who are now moving to focus on their Unity flavour. We would like to thank Canonical for this kind support and wish the best success for the Unity flavour (also called Ubuntu). </blockquote>

We wish you all the best Kubuntu - and also the same to Blue Systems.
