KDE 4.0.1 added to Portage tree
Posted on February 10, 2008 by Donnie Berkholz

KDE 4.0.1 recently joined the Portage tree, thanks to Gentoo's KDE team.

This is the first maintenance release in the KDE4 series and fixes many issues in the initial release, including significant changes to the Konqueror web browser. These changes include stability bugfixes and performance improvements and its Flash integration as well as its JavaScript support.

KWin, the window manager, has received improvements to compositing and error handling. Almost all other KDE modules have been worked on extensively as well.

KDE 4.0.1 remains hard-masked because it still lacks KDE 3.5's polish. If you want to try it out, follow our KDE4 guide.

Discuss this!

Wulf C. Krueger contributed the draft for this announcement.
