KDE 4.9 arrives with incremental improvements, KDE devs prepare for Qt 5

Filed under
KDE

The developers behind the KDE project announced today the official release of version 4.9, an update that brings improvements to KDE’s Plasma Workspaces, the KDE application stack, and the underlying KDE platform. The release is dedicated to Claire Lotion, a KDE contributor who recently passed away.

KDE’s Dolphin file manager has received several major improvements in 4.9, including support for displaying file metadata such as image resolutions. It’s also now possible to group and sort files by metadata properties. Other new features that have been added to the file manager include inline file renaming and an updated "places" sidebar. Dolphin’s version control system integration (which already works with git, CVS, and SVN) has been expanded to support Mercurial.
