Thread: KDE 4.7 is out!

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4.7 is out!

    Hello,

    KDE 4.7 is already out, according to KDE - Experience Freedom!.

    Does anyone know if KDE 4.7 will be available in 12.1?

    Secondly, how do I install it in 12.1 M3?

    Finally, how do I update/upgrade from KDE4.6.5 in 11.4?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wait in 11.4 there are broken packages that will spew out wrong digest errors

    12.1 would use factory, but it still seems to be in RC stage

    Almost posted KDE 4.7 thread asking if anyone had found time to gain experience and whether they rated it, but as it's gone "stable" it doesn't seem right place in forum, to discuss anymore.

    OK KDE 4.7 will definitely be in 12.1, KDE 4.8 will be due for release in January.

    To update a 12.1 Milestone release before the next Milestone (M4) in this case, simply change the repos oss & non-oss to those in Index of /factory-tested/repo
    Factory tested is only updated when factory packages, boot, start X & have a functioning zypper upgrade mechanism. You don't want an upgrade which break any of those, so I should use the automatic roller, not factory directly.

    If you're running 12.1 Milestone of Factory, please remember it's being actively developed, it's not meant for production yet and your bug reports can help make 12.1 a great release in Novemember. M6 is the "beta" release, with RC's after that.
