KDE Software Compilation 4.4.4 Out

KDE has issued another update to the 4.4 desktop, applications and development libraries. KDE SC 4.4.4 brings, in addition to its funny version number, mainly small bugfixes that further polish the user experience. Most notable are probably sorting fixes for natural sorting in Dolphin, our nice file manager.

The KDE release team also decided to do another release in the 4.4 series, 4.4.5, to come out next month, before fully concentrating on the 4.5 tree. SC 4.4.4 though is a stable update that is recommended to everyone running 4.4.3 or earlier. Packages from your favorite OS vendor will become available soon.
