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 don't need to look into the code and do a thorough reductionist analysis when the behavior is crystal clear: everything but Qt4 is slow on my system. If *everything* was slow, sure, blame the drivers. However, I find it very hard to believe it is just the drivers' fault if only one toolkit ever seems to have a problem. And if it is the drivers' fault, it's because the toolkit is making use of edge cases which the other toolkits can clearly get by without using and Qt4 should do the same. Again, don't need to look at code to know the correct answer here.

It should not take noticeable amounts of time to redraw a section of a double-buffered window during an exposure event. I don't need to look at code to know that that is bad behavior on the part of the toolkit.

everything thing but Qt4 is fast on my system.
