Gesundheit!: KDE 4.3.4 Code-Named "Cold"

Dec 02, 2009

The KDE Software Compilation 4.3.4 release freezes the features for the upcoming 4.4, hence the code-name.

The last release in the 4.3 Software Compilation (SC) series provides a handful of bugfixes, such as in the Okular document viewer and the Marble desktop atlas software. Okular now actually stops the search when clicking the X button in the Find bar and Marble shows the correct altitude in navigation mode. The KGpg interface for GnuPG now recognizes passphrases with non-ASCII characters.

The first beta for the KDE SC 4.4 is scheduled for December 4, according to Sebastian K├╝gler. Further fixes for 4.3 are in the changelog, which includes links to the SVN entries. The project suggests 4.3.4 as a "recommended upgrade for everyone running 4.3.3." Source downloads and installation guidelines are available in the product announcement.
