KDE SC 4.3.5 Released

Filed under
KDE

KDE's release team is working hard these days as you see. Today, we're bringing to you the final update for KDE SC 4.3, 4.3.5. Final because there are currently no more releases planned for the 4.3 branch. The KDE team will instead fully concentrate on KDE 4.4, with its first incarnation coming to users across the world on February 9th.

Still, it's worth upgrading to KDE 4.3.5: KIO has seen a great number of bugfixes making it a lot more robust, and a lot more "just works". Konqueror has fixed some rendering problems (for example in the statusbar). As usual, you can find a more comprehensive list of changes in the changelog.

KDE SC 4.3.5 has a number of improvements:

* A number of bugs in KIO have been squashed, making updating of shown directories work again and solving some other stability issues
* A crash when creating an avatar from the webcam in Kopete has been fixed
* kded taking 100% CPU time in certain situations has been cured

Why release it now.

They don't know that they are doing. First they say there will be no update to 4.3.5 then now they release 4.3.5. Are they running around in circles? Why release 4.3.5 when 4.4 is a couple of weeks away. pffttttttt!

Ubuntu Linux in the Wild: How a French University Uses Unity

Is Canonical's Unity interface for Ubuntu Linux ready for use by the masses? Arguably, no. But the administration of the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS) in Paris apparently likes Unity well enough to deploy it throughout the university's library. The ENS is one of France's "grandes écoles," or elite universities. It also happens to have one of the only open-stack academic libraries in Paris, which is what brought me there this week. I was surprised upon entering to find that the workstations throughout the library now run Ubuntu (which was not the case when I was last there, circa early 2012). Here's proof: Read more

The trials of certifying open source software

Open source won and, over the past five years or so, we have been seeing the acceleration of a new wave of open source projects that got their starts in corporations. This comes with a set of new challenges, as new corporate participants struggle with some of the realities. Folks generally understand that foundations provide neutrality in some form, but don't necessarily know how to drive the competitive discussions from the room. One of the more disturbing symptoms of this confusion is the discussions beginning around "certification" and what it means to be certified to a particular project. What is Certified Good SoftwareTM?
