Two Big Software Releases

1. This morning I saw that WordPress 2.0.3 was released. This is mostly a bugfix and security release that includes an issue raised by Bugtraq some days ago. Upgrade is recommended for all WordPress 2.x users.

2. On the other hand, this press release was issued yesterday:

The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.3, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes. Unusually for a maintenance release, new features were implemented due to the long release cycle of the eagerly-awaited KDE 4. Stability and speed were also improved, along with increasingly complete translations in 65 languages.

Among some of those new features, the startup sequence was re-ordered to improve startup times. Yeeehaaaaaw!!!! :D. Slackware packages are available in the relevant “contrib” directory.

I guess wget will be really busy these days… 😉


  1. I’ll probably have to wait awhile for it to show up on FreeBSD ports. Then it will take awhile to rebuild it all. Somehow, I don’t feel in a hurry, since all is working well for me.

  2. Tim: Thanks! but I think I will download the packages myself. Now, for a new Slackware release, that would be a totally different story!
