Pat finally included KDE 4.8.2 into -Current along with other updates. I think most of the libraries used by Pat is the latest one. For those who have been using Eric's KDE packages, it's better to switch to -Current as i think Eric will delete his KDE packages once the packages are merged into -Current (to reduce duplication and confusion among users).
ModemManager (which is also part of Eric's work) has also managed to be included in Slackware. So now you have more options to work with networking besides wicd.
It will be a massive update on -Current today, so i'll just sync them right away
