Integrate latest stable KDE4 release

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Done

Description

Depending on what the openSUSE 11.2 schedule allows, the next release has to contain either the latest KDE 4.2.x or KDE 4.3.x packages including usual nifties (see external link) and integration with the distribution. In any case it should be tested and run with Qt 4.5 and KDE applications should be used in KDE4 versions as far as possible.

Relations

Testcase

  • Check if KDE version is >=4.3
  • for example kde4-config --version

Stefan, when will Qt 4.5 be released?

Uuups, sorry for misspelling, Stephan.

Qt 4.5 is scheduled for March 2009.

Qt 4.5 RC 1 and KDE 4.2 have entered Factory so implementation and compatibility testing have already started. :-)

Would be good if the next openSUSE release (oS 11.2) also included KDE 3.5, since that is considered to be more stable, with a large user-base. Especially in view of so many problems (plasma component/desktop crash), reported with KDE 4.2.

KDE 3.5 is not topic of this Fate entry, it has been already long time ago decided during 11.1 discussion that it will not be part of 11.2 (see http://news.opensuse.org/2008/09/09/kde-in-opensuse-111-and-beyond/ ) and most of its packages have been already removed from Factory.

Recent posts indicate that openSUSE 11.2 will be shipped with KDE 4.3 therefore it would be logical to move KDE 4.2 from openSUSE 11.1 factory to stable.

This is the wrong place to discuss the structure of Build Service repositories. Use the opensuse-kde mailing list or team meetings for that.

The title of this feature is "Integrate latest stable KDE4 release" and I agree. Stable desktop releases should be integrated in the stable repositories not backported into the factory(=unstable) repos as is the case now.

This is one I would like to see.

4.3.1 preferably

icons/user_comment.png L. L. wrote: (8 years ago)

Done, 4.3.0 is in. We will continue to pick up bugfix releases as long as possible.

Use KDE 4.3.3 in openSUSE 11.2?
