KDE 4.3.3 on Slackware-Current

Slackware-Current has included KDE 4.3.3 on the latest batch of updates today. The latest Java (JRE and JDK) are also included on this update. One interesting thing is the removal of Phonon package which is the multimedia package for KDE. On my system, Amarok won't play any MP3 files again after removal of Phonon, so i finally tried to install it again and it worked.

My suggestion is that if you are running rsync, have a backup of phonon package just in case removing phonon broke your Amarok Goodluck.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:
