-About this release
-------------------
-
-Rosegarden 1.4.0 is a major feature release.
-
-This is a particularly exciting release for the Rosegarden project.
-It includes a number of interesting new features, many of which we
-expect to build upon further in future releases.  It also contains
-significant code contributions from a greater number of people than
-any previous Rosegarden release, including D. Michael McIntyre, Pedro
-Lopez-Cabanillas, Heikki Junes, Stephen Torri, Magnus Johansson, Vince
-Negri and Martin Shepherd as well as Chris Cannam, Guillaume Laurent,
-and a number of active translators.

-Please see the release notes for details of new features in this
-release.

 Build requirements

-The big requirement is KDE 3.1, or later, or more specifically the KDE 3.1+
-development libraries (you don't need the whole KDE environment).

 need JACK 0.77 or newer; for synth plugins you need DSSI 0.9.x or

-Compiling from source
----------------------
-
-You will need to obtain and install CMake version 2.4.2 or newer:
-
-  http://cmake.org/HTML/Download.html
-
-If you are not familiar with CMake, it's a more modern alternative to 
-autotools / configure. See this page:
-
-  http://cmake.org/HTML/Index.html
-
-For a typical end-user installation with no unusual requirements, simply run
-
-  cmake .
-  make
-  make install
-
-By default, the install prefix will be /usr/local. If your KDE is installed
-at some other prefix, you may want to override this setting using:
-
-  cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde-config --prefix`
-
-The build system should automatically detect various optional installed 
-libraries with no further effort on your part. It will tell you if something 
-it needs does not appear to be available.
-
-For special requirements, a few options are supported.  These take the
-format -DWANT_XXXX=[0|1|NO|YES|OFF|ON], for example
-
-  cmake . -DWANT_DEBUG=YES
-
-To see a list of available options, use the interactive version of cmake
-
-  ccmake .
-
-To uninstall, use
-
-  make uninstall
-
-NOTE: The installation prefix should be the same as the one of your
-KDE installation. However you can install to another directory, but
-then you'll have to append it to your KDEDIRS variable. For instance :
-
-KDEDIRS=/usr:/home/glaurent/rosegarden
+We have recently switched to CMake for building (having previously
+started out with autotools and then switched to scons -- sorry!).
+Please read the INSTALL file for details of how to build and install
+Rosegarden using CMake.
