KDE 4.2

Posted by : Rob Stevens | Wednesday, February 04, 2009 | Published in

The Kubuntu page saw the announcment a few days ago of the projects release of their KDE 4.2 packages.

I added the repository, updated my system and (a couple of small glitches aside) am very impressed so far. It looks brilliant. Much better than 4.1 (which was itself quite pretty). All of the annoying glitches in things like the system tray have disappeared and the menu and other moving features are smooth and slick.

I haven't used it enough yet to be sure, but it seems faster than 4.1.

A few updates should make this a sound release.

Did I mention that it's pretty?
