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.

I'm tired of the excuses. Qt4 and GTK+ are just plain slow and there's no getting around that. And to top it off, while KDE 3.5 and to some extent GTK+ apps have been getting faster on my machine as my X drivers and server improve, Qt 4 has gone considerably slower. That just doesn't make sense. Somebody is screwing up.


Your machine wouldn't have Intel graphics by any chance would it?

On my test machine, KDE 4.3 is faster than any previous version of KDE (including KDE 3 series) and faster than GNOME.
