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!

Currys/PC World (UK) Voids Warranty on Hardware If Buyer Installs GNU/Linux

As it turns out — and this was confirmed to us by multiple people (in multiple PC World stores) after arguing for more than half an hour — once you install GNU/Linux (even if it’s dual boot with Windows) no damage to hardware would be covered by the warranty (keyboard, screen, and so on). One of the sellers, who follows the Linux Action Show, regretted this but also defended this policy because it’s imposed from above. No matter how ridiculous a policy it is, changes to zeroes and ones on the hard-drive (to remove spyware), according to Currys, would void the warranty on what clearly is not connected to software.

GTK+ Lands Experimental Backend For Mir Display Server

GTK+ apps now run not only on X11 and Wayland under Linux with native support but the mainline GTK+ Git code now also supports running Ubuntu's Mir Display Server. That's right, there's now mainline Mir support in GTK for the GNOME/GTK 3.16 release. Beyond many GTK+ 3.16 improvements that already landed, Canonical's Robert Ancell has been leading work on mainlining the GTK+ Mir support capabilities. As of yesterday in Git, that work is now in Git for GTK+ 3.16 and all of the GTK+ 3.15.x development releases ahead. Read more
