Home Page:

We could install Kde 4.3.2 just now, thanks to:
- Helio Chissini de Castro <helio at mandriva dot com > Mandriva KDE Team >KDE Project
- Nicolas Lécureuil <neoclust at> great Mandriva contrib team guy

Work in progress:
MIB has started its first tests to see if we can make a good port to 2009.1. Before we'll check the new QT 4.5.3 to test their backwards compatibility with earlier published programs, only if everything is good as we hope, we'll continue Porting, and we'll prepare a practical guide for the installation, entitled: Installing KDE 4.3.2 on Mandriva 2009.1 - 32/64bit

Lavori in corso:
Il MIB ha iniziato i primi test, per verificare se sarà possibile farne un buon porting per la 2009.1.
Prima si verificheranno le nuove QT 4.5.3 per testarne la loro retro compatibilità con i precedenti programmi pubblicati, se tutto sarà buono come speriamo, proseguiremo nel Porting, e prepareremo una guida pratica per l'installazione: Installare KDE 4.3.2 su Mandriva 2009.1 - 32/64bit

KDE 4.3.2 Stabilizes Free Desktop

KDE Community Ships Second Translation and Service Release of the 4.3 Free Desktop, Containing Numerous Bugfixes, Performance Improvements and Translation Updates

October 6th, 2009. Another month has passed since the release of KDE 4.3.0, so today the KDE Community announces the immediate availability of KDE 4.3.2, a bugfix, translation and maintenance update for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop. KDE 4.3.2 is a monthly update to KDE 4.3. It ships with a desktop workspace and many cross-platform applications such as administration programs, network tools, educational applications, utilities, multimedia software, games, artwork, development tools and more. KDE's award-winning tools and applications are available in more than 50 languages.

KDE 4.3.2 brings a nice numer of bugfixes, some critical, some just fixing small annoyances:

    * Many crashers have been fixed in KDE's core libraries, bringing more stability to all applications
    * KWin's window compositing effects have been further stabilized by fixing a number of bugs in effect plugins such as the famous coverswitch window switcher
    * The biggest number of bugs for this release has been fixed in KMail, KDE's email client, making it more reliable and usable by correcting a number of display issues
    * Saving files over themselves works again in Okular, KDE's document viewer

As usual, the changelog provides more -- if not exhaustive -- information about improvements in KDE 4.3.2. The KDE team recommends KDE 4.3.2 for everyone running an earlier version of KDE.
