December 1st, 2009. Today, KDE has released a new version of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC). This month’s edition of KDE SC is a bugfix and translation update to KDE SC 4.3. KDE SC 4.3.4 is a recommended upgrade for everyone running KDE 4.3.3 or earlier versions. 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 SC 4.3.4 is more completely translated. KDE 4 is already translated into more than 50 languages, with more to come.
KDE SC 4.3.4 has a number of improvements:
- A bugfix in Plasma’s pixmap cache makes the workspace more responsive
- Okular, the document viewer improved stability in certain situations
- Marble, the desktop globe has seen some polish
- Passphrases with non-ASCII characters have been fixed in the KGpg encryption tool
The changelog has more, if not exhaustive, lists of the improvements since KDE SC 4.3.3.
