    Default KDE 4.2 Updates ???


    I am a little confused as why there has been two updates (approx 200Mb
    each time) since the release of KDE 4.2 on Tuesday.

    Because it's packaged in Factory

    Expect a constant flux.

    I have had 3. It's just the devs working on fixing bugs and features.
    They will keep coming since it's in factory and therefore under
    development

    Thanks for the clarification. We have limited Bandwidth in Australia,
    that's why I asked. Factory is the only place for KDE 4.2 (Stable)
    though isn't it?

    It's stable sort of.

    It has not been assigned a stable dir

    And as Factory - this means it's in development. It's not 'Stable'.
    Expect issues now and then. In fact even 'Stable' will have a tantrum
    now and then.

    Understand all these repo's are in the Build Service.

    Technically, there is no need for you to run these updates everytime
    they come out. Just get updates from official 'Update repo'.

    If you use Software Manager
    filter by repo
    you can just select the update repo and mark the updates in there.

    Some of us - run ALL the updates regularly because we are involved in
    bug reporting and interested in development.

    Yes this is because 11.1 was shipped with 4.13 and the only change the
    version numbers with each release.
    From what i've read 11.2 will come with 4.3

    Just because there are newer packages available does not mean you have
    to update. If everything you need works fine, do not update. If there is
    somehting broken, check here or on IRC whether it is something that has
    been fixed in more recent packages and then you know whether it's worth
    updating or not.
