Just a week after the release of the KDE 4.3 release candidate
, a second release candidate has emerged from the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. KDE 4.3 Release Candidate 2 incorporates fewer changes than earlier development releases, as development winds down for the final release of KDE 4.3.0 later this month.
The KDE 4.3.0 RC2 announcement can be read at KDE.org
. KDE 4.3 features a variety of improvements to this open-source desktop environment, including new window animation effects, integration of new technologies, updated applications, etc.
Following the release of KDE 4.3, there will be the monthly point updates that bring translation updates and bug fixes, while the next major release to follow is KDE 4.4 in January of 2010.
