The KDE project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.6, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes. Significant features include additional support for Compiz as a window manager with Kicker, session management for browser tabs in Akregator,
templating for KMail messages, faster frame rates with video chat in Kopete and new summary menus for
Kontact making it easier to work with your appointments and to-dos.
This release includes a number of bugfixes for KHTML, Kate,
Kicker, KSysGuard and lots of other applications. Translations continue as well, with the most improved coverage coming from the Galician translation team. KDE now
supports 65 languages, making it available to more people than most proprietary software and can be easily extended to support others by communities who wish
to contribute to the open source project.
For a more detailed list of improvements since
the KDE 3.5.5 release
last October, please refer to the
KDE 3.5.6 Changelog.
Packages are available for ArchLinux, Debian Experimental, Kubuntu, Pardus, openSUSE and several other distros. See the 3.5.6 info page for the source or use Konstruct to compile it yourself.
