As was mentioned earlier this week that the fifth maintenance release for the K Desktop Environment was about to surface, today KDE 3.5.5 has been formally released. New in KDE 3.5.5 are notable improvements to Kopete. Some of these KDE messenger improvements are support for Adium themes, performance improvements, and better support for Yahoo and Jabber protocols. Also changed in KDE 3.5.5 is sudo in kdesu, numerous speed improvements, and KHTML (Konqueror's HTML) rendering improvements. CUPS 1.2 is also supported from KDEPrint as well as many language improvements in this release. More on KDE 3.5.5 can be found in the release announcement.
KDE 3.5.5 will be shipping later this week with several maintenance updates. This release will contain a great deal of bug fixes, improved language support, and a new version of Kopete. Stay tuned for this release in the next couple of days.
The first development snapshot is now available for KDE 4. This first snapshot is at version 3.80.1.
A new maintenance release is out this morning for the KDE 3.5 series. KDE v3.5.4 brings a host of new features from fixes with the Konqueror HTML engine to KNetworkConf now supporting Fedora Core 5. The KDE press release for version 3.5.4 can be found here.
The KDE project has announced the immediate availability of KDE version 3.5.3. While by nature this would be a maintenance release, a few new features and enhancements were implemented in this latest release. The reason for these new implementations is the longer release cycle for KDE 4.0. Some of the significant enhancements include improving the KDE start-up time, 800 minor issues fixed, and small new features were implemented in a few different programs. More on the KDE 3.5.3 release is available in the release announcement.
For those that are not fans of OpenOffice or AbiWord, KOffice is one of the popular alternatives for KDE users. Some of the implementations in the newly unleashed KOffice 1.5 is native support for OpenDocument File Format, Krita and Kexi improvements, and a fast paced development. The press release is available for KOffice 1.5. The contents of KOffice 1.5 include KWord, KSpread, KPresenter, Kivio, Kexi, Krita, Karbon14, and KPlato.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.2, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
