KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

The good:

* They finally focused in stability.
* The overal speed feels better.

The bad:
* Oxygen theme, matter of taste of course.
* The air circles in plasma theme, distracting.
* Round borders in context menu, due to the Oxygen theme.
* The font in the calendar is to huge.
* Some plasmoid still make plasma crash, sandboxing anyone?
* Dolphin is slow some times.
* No pdf previews in icons, like images do.
* To much focus in eye candy, but productivity apps. like mail and browser still lack behind.
* No way to search for content, something like tracker.
* The side bar in Okular, no way to deactivate it (but maybe im wrong).
* Digikam takes to much memory (80 megas w/o any picture), and it uses marble as a dependency still when many of us don't have any use for it, pluggins anyone?
* Many of the plasmoids are useless, just a few of them have a real porpose.
* KWin still is buggy and gets slow some times, driver issued? don't know, compiz has no problems.
* Separators in panels? not intuitive at all, could be a lot better.

Hopely all this points will be fixed, some are minors and some are not that minors.
