KDE 4.11.5 for Slackware 14.1

For those who still prefer to use a stable KDE 4.11.x releases, well, Eric has a good news that he intended to keep providing KDE 4.11.x releases, at least until 4.11.9, which will be on April 2014. In fact, he already published his KDE 4.11.5 packages on KTown which is already mirrored to several mirror sites below:
KDE 4.11.5 as usual, only contains bug fixes and translations updates, so it's safe to upgrade to this version when you have been running previous version of KDE 4.11.x series. Here's what has been integrated on this release:
Several recorded bugfixes include improvements to the personal information management suite Kontact, the UML tool Umbrello, the document viewer Okular, the web browser Konqueror, the file manager Dolphin, and others. The Plasma calculator can handle greek letters now and Okular can print pages with long titles. And Konqueror got better web fonts support through fixing a bug. A complete list of changes can be seen on KDE Issue Tracker.
For those running KDE 4.12.0, Eric will update KDE 4.12 packages with newer kde-workspace-4.11.5 to sync with this release.
