    Default KDE 4.3.2 Makes It Out With Some Enhancements

    Phoronix: KDE 4.3.2 Makes It Out With Some Enhancements

    Continuing with the monthly point-release updates until KDE 4.4 is released next January, KDE 4.3.2 packages are now available for download. KDE 4.3.2 brings many crasher fixes, further stabilization work to KWin's window compositing effects, and KMail improvements. The KDE 4.3.2 release announcement is available at KDE.org...

    It's rock-solid here. But then again, I'm not the "tweak it to death" kind of person.

    I'll take KDE3's Kaffeine over the Phonon based Krapeine any day. I know it's still pre-release but that doesn't seem to stop distros from using it (openSUSE 11.2 and Karmic will for example).

    Alas my list of KDE4 gripes is dwindling even if I don't see the point in having lots of windows stuck to the surface of the desktop without the ability to be on top of other windows. I just don't see how it makes anything more useful to be part of your wallpaper. I don't care how fast you can minimize/hide all your windows to get to it... it just serves to disconnect the widget from your work flow. I know I don't have to use them (and I don't). I just think they are silly and wanted to let you know that I think you're silly too if you like them.

    It's been dropped from karmic in favour of dragonplayer.

    Kaffeine rocks! It rocked at least when I had tried in KDE3. I always wanted a similar player for Gnome.

    Bummer. Dragonplayer has some seek issues
    Ah well, at least VLC will integrate nicely with my KDE4 desktop

    Kaffiene is still in alpha - and this is a LTS release. That was the reasoning I think.
