KDE The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.4, a maintenance release. Significant enhancements include improved support for removable devices. Multiple holidays can now start on the same date in KOrganizer. Lots of fixes have been applied to Konqueror's HTML engine, KHTML. The dialog for sending client-side SSL certificates is now more usable, the StartCom SSL certificate was added and KNetworkConf now supports Fedora Core 5 and handles WEP better.

Congrats to the KDE team for getting another release out!

Been some debates on IRC about whether it is ok for distro's to already be releasing packages labeled 3.5.4 prior to this release. It does seem to take away some of the excitement of the release though...

Most KDE users have likely been using 3.5.4 for at least a few days now. Its very nice, some small very noticeable improvements (for instance konqueror speed improvements!)

Yeah, that was just what I was thinking:

Is it me or is Konqueror just faster?

Overall I think performance is great in KDE 3.5.x. Starting KOffice is just fun to watch ;-)

I just found another speed improvement: hardware detection.

I just plugged in my camera and almost instantly a popup appeared.
