Linuxhelp _ News _ Kde 3.2 Is Released

Posted by: Corey Feb 3 2004, 10:43 AM

Everyone's favorite desktop environment (well, at least mine anyways), KDE, released their latest stable version, 3.2. The updates are too numerous to mention. I haven't tried the official stable 3.2, but i've been using the pre-releases, and everything feels smoother, faster, and more feature-full. Try it out for yourself.

You can grab the source code, or the binaries for some distributions by checking out a mirror closest to you. For a list, visit the following URL:

I'm not much of a KDE guy now (although I preferred KDE when it was KDE 1.1.2 and Gnome 1.0.55 on RedHat 5.x) .... but I'll give KDE 3.2 give it a spin.

OK ... I'm updating my Mandrake 10 Beta2 test install to KDE 3.2 (using the Mandrake Cooker version released today via urpmi). I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I wish i had a high-speed connection again, i wouldn't mind trying out mandrake beta. oh well sad.gif

OK ... I installed the Mandrake 10 Beta 2 with 2.6.2 kernel, KDE 3.2, Mozilla 1.6.

KDE 3.2 looks pretty good and it does feel smoother and faster ... I might give it a try for a little while.

Where did you find mandrake rpms? Or where they only for the 10 beta? I would like to upgrade my mandrake KDE to 3.2 but I couldn't find rpms for it and I am not so sure I want to muck about with building something as centrial as my desktop.

Posted by: hughesjr Feb 11 2004, 02:21 AM

The rpms I used were part of the Beta 2 install .... The Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community - Final is supposed to be released on Feb 18, 2004. ... see http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/pr-releaseprocess.php3 for Mandrake's new release model.
