The KDE community today
released KDE 3.5.8. While the developers' main focus lies on finishing KDE 4.0, the stable 3.5 series remains the desktop of choice for the time being. It is proven, stable and well supported. The 3.5.8 release with its literally hundreds of bugfixes has again improved the users' experience. The 3.5.8 info page lists how to get the sources and distribution packages.
The main focus of improvements for KDE 3.5.8 is
Improvements in Konqueror and its web browsing component KHTML. Bugs in handling
HTTP connections have been fixed, KHTML has improved support
of some CSS features for more standards compliance.
In the kdegraphics package, lots of fixes in KDE's PDF viewer and Kolourpaint, a painting
application, went into this release.
The KDE PIM suite has, as usual, seen numerous stability fixes, covering KDE's email client
KMail, the organizer application KOrganizer and various other bits and pieces.
