KDE Community Ships Second Translation and Service Release of the 4.3 Free Desktop, Containing Numerous Bugfixes, Performance Improvements and Translation Updates
October 6th, 2009. Another month has passed since the release of KDE 4.3.0, so today the KDE Community announces the immediate availability of KDE 4.3.2, a bugfix, translation and maintenance update for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop. KDE 4.3.2 is a monthly update to KDE 4.3. It ships with a desktop workspace and many cross-platform applications such as administration programs, network tools, educational applications, utilities, multimedia software, games, artwork, development tools and more. KDE’s award-winning tools and applications are available in more than 50 languages.
KDE 4.3.2 brings a nice numer of bugfixes, some critical, some just fixing small annoyances:
- Many crashers have been fixed in KDE’s core libraries, bringing more stability to all applications
- KWin’s window compositing effects have been further stabilized by fixing a number of bugs in effect plugins such as the famous coverswitch window switcher
- The biggest number of bugs for this release has been fixed in KMail, KDE’s email client, making it more reliable and usable by correcting a number of display issues
- Saving files over themselves works again in Okular, KDE’s document viewer
As usual, the changelog provides more — if not exhaustive — information about improvements in KDE 4.3.2. The KDE team recommends KDE 4.3.2 for everyone running an earlier version of KDE.
