X-ray line emission from $$2l-nl$$' transitions in Ne-like Kr and nearby ions has been observed from $$approx$$ 1 $$mu$$m Kr clusters irradiated by fs-scale laser pulses at the JAERI facility in Kyoto, Japan. The dependence of X-ray spectral features and intensity on the incident laser intensity is rather weak, indicating that the 1-2 ps cluster lifetimes limit the number of ions beyond Ne-like Kr that can be produced by collisional ionization. A collisional-radiative model based on the relativistic multiconfigured FAC code has been constructed and used to determine that the cluster plasma has electron densities near 10$$^{22}$$ cm$$^{-3}$$, temperature of a few hundred eV and hot electron fraction of a few percent.
