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!

What is keeping you from switching to Linux?

I'd like to make time for switching my main system but it is not there yet. What I plan to do is however use Linux on my laptop and get used to it this way. While it will take longer than a radical switch, it is the best I can do right now. Eventually though, I'd like to run all but one system on Linux and not Windows.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
