For those Linux desktop users still not fond of KDE4 and preferring to stick it out with the vintage KDE 3.5 branch, the KDE 3.5 fork known as the Trinity Desktop has seen a new update.

Version 3.5.13.1 of the Trinity Desktop Environment was released in the early hours of the morning by Timothy Pearson. "The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 3.5.13.1 of the Trinity Desktop Environment. The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software. Almost a year in development and testing, this stable release update is comprised of 141 bug fixes and 1,193 patches. This new release does not introduce new features but is focused on stabilizing the 3.5.13 release. It should be a smooth update for everyone currently using TDE v3.5.13."

Among the improvements for Trinity 3.5.13.1 are enhancing the screen locking, placement of connected device icons, reorganizing the menu, updated Kate syntax highlighting, improved KMix auto-start, performance improvements for OMAP, Ark improvements, new keyboard shortcuts for KMPlayer, updates to KMyMoney and KTorrent, and new localization packages.

More details on the update to this KDE 3.5 fork can be found from the project's Wiki page.
