Latest KDE version available: KDE 4.7.2

Yesterday, October 5, 2011, this new version of KDE, KDE 4.7.2, was released.

Once again, this update only contains bug fixes and translation fixes, so the update from KDE 4.7.0 or KDE 4.7.1 to KDE 4.7.2 should go smoothly.

To download and install it, go to the information page for this version, or directly from the download area, and at the moment there are only unique packages (that is, meta packages) for OpenSuse, however… at this very moment it is already available in the official ArchLinux repos, so… update !!! LOL!!!

The most novel or that should be mentioned, are improvements that have been made to the new suite Contact, improvements regarding that now it will use much more Akonadi.

Nothing more to add, because the changes are really only bug fixes, in fact in the official announcement developers acknowledge that not even the changelog is up to date, that for a detailed list of the changes we must (ourselves, the users) look for this list in Git.

    In Kubuntu we will have to wait, right? XD as always, Canonical has abandoned us ... let's see if Kubuntu gets a little bit the batteries because they are having problems with the KDE packaging (and they are not entirely fine, notice).

      The good thing about Ubuntu are the PPAs. I'm sure someone already has that version of KDE.

      I encourage you to try opensuse-kde. I was also obstinate in using kde with debian and its many variants and after months of testing, following elav's tutorials and advice ..., etc., I have tried opensuse and ... uff, it has been like taking off a blindfold, there is no color in the operation (with kde is understood). At least for me, I don't get along with Linux, but I don't have much time to go optimizing and fixing every two by three. It is another option, it never hurts to look at other alternatives.

        I have tried KDE in OpenSuse, but I notice it too, too slow ... in Arch even in Debian I have seen it work more smoothly. Although obviously, if you have a Corei7 and 4GB of DDR3 RAM I don't think you have problems haha.

    Hahahaha ironically the lightest kde is in the worst distros "archlinux, gentoo, slackware" good kde and any desktop environment, how bad those distros.

      Nobody has said they are bad. The problem I think is that KDE weighs more on the others because of the amount of things they put to make it more user-friendly.
