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 have ATI Radeon Mobility X300 (r300) with 64 MB of video memory. It's really pretty performant...except when it comes to Qt4. Of course Windows flies, but that's to be expected since they actually know how to write a performant graphics system.


fglrx has dropped support for this chipset, and it never worked well with KDE4 for older versions. KDE4 exposes some aspects of the graphics driver that no other software does.

New open source drivers for ATI chipsets might be available in a few months, by all reports.
