KDE It slipped by us, but the KDE team has released another minor bugfix release of KDE 4.2, version 4.2.3, a few days ago. Being a bugfix release, there are few user-visible changes, but still, there are a few things that stand out. "Online IMAP filtering in KMail has been fixed, KMail's system tray icon now reacts to changes to folder properties and updates the number of emails shown there automatically, and bugfixes, performance improvements and optimization in KHTML - painting and interoperability with web standards has been further improved."

Too bad I can't get it for CentOS 5

I'm currently running CentOS 5.3 and have been looking for a KDE 4 repository. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be one out there. The best I could find was kde-redhat which, with the testing repository, got me up to 3.5.10 (which is pretty nice).

I've been using KDE 4 in openSuse and I really like a lot of the features. It's great to see that they're continually improving it. I just hope to see it on CentOS/Red Hat soon.

A couple of people have managed to build KDE 4.x on RHEL5 (and CentOS5), but it required a lot of changes to core RPMs - which AFAIK prevented the KDE-redhat team from releasing KDE 4.x to RHEL5.

On the other hand, RHEL 6 is long over due (Currently its scheduled to land in Q1/10) and given the fact that it should be built around F10 (F11?), it'll include KDE 4.2.x or even 4.3 out of the box.

Thanks for the info. Red Hat customizes their stuff enough that I guess it's not surprising that it's an incredibly difficult install. I guess I'll have to wait until 6 (or maybe I'll switch to openSuse...)
