KDE 3.5.4 is out

KDE logoThe 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.
