KDE Before we get underway: I'm sorry, we don't have enough headline space to write 'KDE Releases Development Platform, Applications and Plasma Workspaces 4.6.0'. Then again, do any non-anal people every refer to it that way? No? I thought so. In any case, there's a new KDE version out with lots of new features, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.

Phonon support for pulseaudio. Xine is no longer supported as a backend for Phonon, it is recommended to use either gstreamer or VLC backends instead.


Well this is interesting. It's not long since the Gstreamer backend was supposedly killed in favour of Xine. It was even removed from the Arch Linux version of KDE which I believe to be close to vanilla.

Btw, Gstreamer backend is still the same version - 0.1 - as it was back then, in 2009 I believe.

Edit: seems like they upped the version number to match Phonon's 4.4.4 for KDE 4.6.
