KDE’s October Updates Improve Kontact Performance

KDE’s October Updates Improve Kontact Performance

September 7, 2011. Today KDE released updates for its Workspaces,
Applications, and Development Platform. These updates are the second in a
series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.7 series. 4.7.2 updates bring
many bugfixes and translation updates on top of the latest edition in the 4.7
series and are recommended updates for everyone running 4.7.0 or earlier
versions. As the release only contains bugfixes and translation updates, it
will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone. KDE’s software is already
translated into more than 55 languages, with more to come. The October updates
are especially interesting for those using the new Akonadi-based Kontact
Suite, as it contains many performance improvements and bugfixes for
applications such as KMail, and others retrieving information using Akonadi.

To download source code or packages to install go to the 4.7.2 Info Page. The
changelog and Bugzilla list more, but not all improvements since 4.7.1. Note
that these changelogs are incomplete. For a complete list of changes that went
into 4.7.2, you can browse the Subversion and Git logs. 4.7.2 also ships a
more complete set of translations for many of the 55+ supported languages. To
find out more about the KDE Workspace and Applications 4.7, please refer to
the 4.7 release notes and its earlier versions.
