Last Tuesday, the KDE folks released KDE 3.3 Release Candidate 2 as a source-only release. Thankfully, the ever-helpful Jean-Christophe Fargette produced Slackware packages in no time, and by Wednesday afternoon the Slack tarballs were waiting in the KDE FTP server. I’ve downloaded them, and installed the packages as a first order of business yesterday.
The truth is, I’m (almost) in computing Nirvana. KDE 3.3 beta2 was already very stable, but with a few bugs remaining. This Release Candidate has a lot of the bugs squashed, and it is really a contender. So far, I’ve found no showstoppers nor big annoyances. Additionally, a pet peeve of mine (bug 73592) was fixed! I am able to use the famous KDE 1 Window Decoration again! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am… 🙂
