KDE Community Ships Third Translation and Service Release of the 4.3 Free Desktop, Containing Numerous Bugfixes, Performance Improvements and Translation Updates
November 3rd, 2009. Like the ticking of a Swiss watch, every month the KDE team brings you a new release. November’s edition of KDE is a bugfix and translation update to KDE 4.3. With the KDE 4 series picking up in popularity, we’re happy to encourage even more people to give KDE 4 another spin — or just upgrade your existing KDE to KDE 4.3.3. As the release only contains bugfixes and translation updates, it will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone. Users around the world will appreciate that KDE 4.3.3 is more completely translated. KDE 4 is already translated into more than 50 languages, with more to come.
KDE 4.3.3 has a number of improvements that will make your life just a little bit better. Some of KWin’s effects have been smoothed and freed of visual glitches, JuK should now be more stable, KDE PIM has seen its share of improvements while in the back-rooms of KDE, the developers are working hard on porting all applications to the new Akonadi storage and cache. The changelog has more, if not exhaustive, lists of the improvements since KDE 4.3.2.
Note that the changelog is usually incomplete, for a complete list of changes that went into KDE 4.3.3, you can browse the Subversion log. KDE 4.3.3 also ships a more complete set of translations for many of the 50+ supported languages.
