SUSE kubuntu Slackware KDE 3.5.3 packages on mirrors

Filed under
KDE

KDE 3.5.3 was tagged approximately a week ago and some developers have uploaded binaries onto mirrors. Not announced yet, kde 3.5.3 is primarily a maintenance release. On mirrors today we find binaries for SUSE, Slackware, and kubuntu. KDE announcement expected any day.

I downloaded and installed KDE 3.5.3 when it was first tagged and although the speed of kapplications, especially konqueror, seem faster again, there are still some remaining problems. Kweather is still broken, as well as the display of hard drive partitions on the desktop. I've been experiencing some strange behavior from klipper since 3.5.2 and it remains in 3.5.3.

The speed increases in konqueror is documented as improvements in fontrendering, giving a few percent speedup by caching font scalability info.

Also found in konqueror is improved XHTML CSS styling, speed-up painting and selections on pages with large tables, and a fix for certain crashes when hovering HTML menu items.

KDE announcement is expected any day.

Full Changelog.

re: Why three versions of KDE 3.5.3

There's one version from KDE, those others are packages put together by the distro developers and uploaded to the kde and other mirrors. Usually, once you see those showing up on mirrors, you know official announcement is close. Distro developers are usually given a week head start to put them together before announcement.

RHEL 7.2 has an updated kernel target

As mentioned in the beta release notes, the kernel in RHEL 7.2 contains a rebased LIO kernel target, to the equivalent of the Linux 4.0.stable series. This is a big update. LIO has improved greatly since 3.10. It has added support for SCSI features that enable VMWare VAAI support, as well as data integrity (DIF), and significant iSER work, for those of you using Infiniband. (SRP is also supported, as well as iSCSI and FCoE, of course.) Read more
