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.

QT4 over engineered their rendering engines. They did it to get all the fancy effects like AA, composing, etc. Unfortunately they tanked their performance for CAD type applications and pretty much tossed any hope of running remote display/remote terminal applications.

It's a shame and probably all this stuff needs to be ripped out, refactored and dramatically simplified, like the whole rest of QT.
