KDE Ships April Updates to Plasma Workspaces, Applications and Platform

April 4, 2012. Today KDE released updates for its Workspaces, Applications,
and Development Platform. These updates are the first in a series of monthly
stabilization updates to the 4.8 series. 4.8.2 updates bring many bugfixes and
translation updates on top of the latest edition in the 4.8 series and are
recommended updates for everyone running 4.8.0 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.

Significant bugfixes include making encryption of multiple folders using GPG
work, XRender fixes in the KWin window and compositing manager, a series of
bugfixes to the newly introduced Dolphin view engine and improvements in the
Plasma Quick-based new window switcher, which made its first appearance in
4.8.0. Kontact and its device counterpart Kontact Touch have received a number
of important bugfixes as well as performance improvements. The changelog and
Bugzilla lists more, but not all improvements since 4.8.1. Note that these
changelogs are incomplete. For a complete list of changes that went into
4.8.2, you can browse the Subversion and Git logs. 4.8.2 also ships a more
complete set of translations for many of the 55+ supported languages. To
download source code or packages to install go to the 4.8.2 Info Page. If you
would like to find out more about the KDE Workspace and Applications 4.8,
please refer to the 4.8 release notes and its earlier versions.
