The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of "Change", (a.k.a KDE 4.1.3), another bugfix and maintenance update for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop. Change is a monthly update to KDE 4.1. It ships with desktop workspace and many cross-platform applications such as administration programs, network tools, educational applications, utilities, multimedia software, games, artwork, web development tools and more. KDE's award-winning tools and applications are available in more than 50 languages.
KDE, including all its libraries and its applications, is available for free under Open Source licenses. KDE can be obtained in source and various binary formats from http://download.kde.org
and can also be obtained on CD-ROM or with any of the major GNU/Linux and UNIX systems shipping today.
As a service release, the changelog contains a list of bugfixes and improvements. Note that the changelog is usually incomplete, for a complete list of changes that went into KDE 4.1.3, you can browse the Subversion log.
The most significant changes are:
* Two crashes fixed in the Dolphin filemanager.
* As usual a large number of bugfixes and optimizations in the KHTML HT
ML rendering component.
* Several bugfixes in the Kopete multi-protocol Instant Messenger.
KDE 4.1.3 also ships a more complete set of translations. To find out more about the KDE 4.1.x desktop and applications, please refer to the KDE 4.1.0 and KDE 4.0.0 release notes. KDE 4.1.3 is a recommended update for everyone running KDE 4.1.2 or earlier. This release will be followed up by KDE 4.1.4 in December and ultimately by a new feature release, KDE 4.2.0 this coming January.
