The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.4, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes. KDE now supports 65 languages, making it available to more people than most non-free software and can be easily extended to support others by communities who wish to contribute to the open source project.
Significant enhancements include:
- Improved removable device support in Linux (users can now mount all devices supported by FreeDesktop's HAL and control how it will be done)
- Speed optimisations in Konsole and Kate
- Multiple holidays can now start on the same date in KOrganizer
- Lots of fixes in Konqueror's HTML engine, KHTML
- The dialog for sending client-side SSL certificates is now more usable
- KNetworkConf now supports Fedora Core 5 and handles WEP keys better
Over 10 new features were added and more than 100 bugs were fixed. For a more detailed list of improvements since the KDE 3.5.3 release in May 2006, please refer to the KDE 3.5.4 Changelog.
