Konstruct updated for 3.4.2

Konstruct is a build system which helps you install KDE releases and applications on your system. It downloads defined source tarballs, checks their integrity, decompresses, patches, configures, builds, and installs them. A complete KDE installation should be as easy as "cd meta/kde;make install". Optionally, you can install additional applications like KDevelop or KOffice (for example, "cd apps/office/koffice;make install").

Now installs KDE 3.4.2 and KOffice 1.4.1. Added KSystemLog 0.3.1, KTorrent 1.0 and Tellico 0.13.8. Updated all included other applications.

Yet another GTK+ update

GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; we’re up to 3.20.3 now. As I tried to explain in earlier posts here and here, this was a pretty active development cycle for GTK+. We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed. I’m using the neutral term changed here for a reason. How you view changes depends a lot on your perspective. Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt. Read more
