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 wouldn't be complaining like this if I hadn't already spent time tweaking my drivers. EXA is now the default for the Radeon driver and I've been using it for years. I've even tweaked it further by changing the FBTexPercent option in xorg.conf, which actually improves 2d performance significantly, at the cost of 3d performance (which I don't really care about most of the time).

Again, KDE 3.5.10 and to a lesser extent GTK+ apps are all responsive and quickly drawn. It's only Qt4 and KDE4 apps that make me feel like I'm using drivers from 3 years ago.
