Thread: KDE4.6 beta 1 released!

  1. #1

    Exclamation KDE4.6 beta 1 released!

    Just got mail from KDE mailing list about KDE 4.6 beta 1 release.
    KDE releases 4.6 beta1 of Workspaces, Applications and Development Frameworks, bringing significant improvements to desktop search, a revamped activity system and a significant performance boost to window management and desktop effects. Efforts all across the KDE codebase pay off by making KDE's frameworks more suitable for usage on all devices. The release provides a testing base for a stable release in January 2011.

    Any news for factory 11.3 repos, when it can be populated?

    I think the 11.3 factory repos already contain 4.6 Beta 1. I browsed the repo and it contains files in there with version 4.5.80 which is 4.6 Beta 1. And on the info page (KDE - KDE SC 4.5.80 Info Page) we already see that opensuse packages are available and the one click installer on that page is for Factory.

    Installing KDE 4.6 Beta 1 on my laptop now with the KDE and Extra Factory repos for 11.3. Removed the KDE45 repo and added these two then switched packages to these repos in YaST. I am excited to try out the new 4.6 features

    Had the same thing, also for:
    libdbusmenu-qt2 (and the 32bit)
    qt4-qtscript
    libqca2 (and the 32bit)

    I downloaded them manually from the repo, installed them with rpm -iUvh (with --test first of course).
    Then the KDEdaemon crashed, the crash report was clear: kcm_tablet (I have a Wacom I seldom attach to the laptop, but it happens). Uninstalled kcm_tablet, and here I am with a new KDE !!!
    No issues on the desktop itself, started some apps, all OK. A bit mature to report "all well", but it feels and looks nice.

    After the release, few hours later i checked the repos, it was still 4.5.3. May be it was little early and repos were not populated yet.

    I will check it later and report back.
