KDE "Today, KDE has released a series of updates to the Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Platform. This update is the third in a series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.5 series. 4.5.3 brings bugfixes and translation updates on top of KDE SC 4.5 series and is a recommended update for everyone running 4.5.2 or earlier versions. As the release only contains bugfixes and translation updates, it will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone. KDE SC 4 is already translated into more than 55 languages, with more to come."

..he he he ..i build from source and i have it running since two days ago ..

This release fix the only two bugs i was hitting in my day to day use and i am a happy KDE SC user!!! ..

I stopped using KDE SC from trunk couple of months ago. It seem so mature to me now that trunk isnt that interesting anymore.

I am sure i will read a development blog sooner or later that will compel me to go back to running from trunk but i just dont see what that will be at the moment.

Indeed. ;)
Same thing here, though I only had to wait a few hours or something before my used arch mirror synchronosed. ;)

In this case that was quite important for me though, as a recent update unrelated to KDE -- one or two days ago -- broke KDE for me. It constantly crashed and the only thing I could use was my devel account and start the programs for my normal account via ssh.^^

I have the following PPA's enabled on Kubuntu 10.10 and 4.5.3 was available after an apt update and upgrade.

ppa:kubuntu-ppa
ppa:kubuntu-ppa/beta
ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports

edit: Forget that, aptitude upgrade installed bits of 4.5.3, aptitude dist-upgrade wants to delete half of KDE. Will wait a bit longer methinks!
