KDE.org has announced the release of the second release candidate for the forthcoming KDE SC 4.7 build. KDE SC 4.7 is set to be released later in the month, but this is one last chance to test this desktop environment update and catch any last-minute issues.

KDE SC 4.7 features a re-factored KWin compositing window manager with support for OpenGL ES 2.0 rendering, improvements to the Dolphin file manager, the KDM log-in manager supports interfacing with the GRUB2 boot-loader, and Marble now supports offline address search. KDE SC 4.7 RC2 just features various bug-fixes and translation updates since the first release candidate.

See more in the KDE.org press release. KDE SC 4.7 is scheduled to be released on the 27th of July.
