07.05.2009 - Il desktop KDE 4.2.3 Ŕ disponibile per il download pubblico

La Community KDE ha annunciato l'immediata disponibilitÓ del desktop environment "Cuagmire", anche noto come KDE 4.2.3. Si tratta di una release di aggiornamento della major version KDE 4.2, dalla quale "Cuagmire" si distingue per l'integrazione di un lavoro volto essenzialmente al bug fixing, di cui una parte considerevole Ŕ stata riservata al client di posta KMail, e alla manutenzione in generale.

E' al solito ricca la dotazione di tool built-in, che include, tra l'altro, come da tradizione KDE, numerosi applicativi per l'amministrazione del sistema, utility per il network, software multimediali, game e programmi per gli sviluppatori.

KDE 4.2.3 Ŕ un software Open Source: i suoi sorgenti, al pari di alcune versioni compilate, possono essere scaricati dal sito ufficiale.
