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!
