As of today, the latest version of the KDE desktop and software distribution carries the version number 4.2.2. The release, as is usual for our monthly point-releases does not have a lot of exciting new features, but makes your life just a bit easier. Many bug fixes have been backported from the trunk of KDE development. Among those fixes is a large number of improvements in KHTML, some stability work on KRunner, a long list of improvements to KMail, and many others. As they say, the devil is in the detail, so take a cup of tea and read the changelog for yourself. Note that the changelog is often not complete, so be sure to upgrade and check what has been fixed in the set of programs you use.
This release contains translation updates, bug fixes and performance improvements. It should be a safe upgrade for everybody running KDE 4.2.1 or earlier versions.
The release is called "Cano", after the city in Nigeria where the first Nigerian Free Software conference was held last month.
