    Default KDE 4.4.4

    I'm full of questions today :-)

    There doesn't seem to be a one-click install on KDEs page
    for 4.4.4 only 4.4.3. Does anyone know if there is going to
    be one for 11.2 or is Suse targeting 11.3 ?

    Apparently 4.4.4 is being swerved - as they are concentrating on the forthcoming (in Aug) kde 4.5 and opensuse 11.3 due next month.

    An understandable swerve, considering that 4.4.4 is a bugfix of 4.4.3, and KDE 4.5 is due in less than two months, and 11.3 isn't due until mid-July.

    Besides, 4.5 beta 2 is is the OBS (with one-clicks for the entire 11 series + Factory); why muck things up with 4.4.4 unless 4.4.3 is going to get tossed?

    Even Sabayon 5.3 is only going with 4.4.3 (with 4.4.4 in Entropy), and no path to even 4.5 b2 at present.

    couldn't that also be said of every release since 1.0.0 ?

    I believe 4.4.4 doesent bring any new features, as 4.5 does.

    That is precisely my point (concerning 4.4.4); there are no new features at all (4.4.3 does have new features compared to 4.3.5, which has new features compared to 4.0.2 or even 4.2).

    If you aren't going to move to 4.5 just yet, 4.4.3 is a better midway point while waiting than 4.3.5, however (though from a stability standpoint, 4.4.4 *does* improve on 4.4.3).

    If KDE 4.3.5 were considered the equivalent of Windows 95, then 4.4.3 would be Windows 95's OEM Service Release 2 (and 4.4.4 would be the rare Service Release 2.5). While the base system requirements didn't change, the additional features supported certainly did.

    Those using Factory for 11.2 might be interested to know it seems to have been bumped up to 4.4.4
    We were told this would not happen, but it seems to be. I'm updating as I speak.
    I wonder if this only applies to 11.2, as factory should reflect development, so I wonder if they are holding back plain factory that supplied 11.3 development?

    I'll be checking on it and will report...

    Question Re: KDE 4.4.4

    What's up with the packagekit version that the factory repo (11.2) is requesting now? Why is it requesting packagekit > 0.6.3 for kde 4.4.4??
    Currently I'm working with kde 4.4.3 (factory repo) but with packagekit 0.5.3.
    Am I missing something?
