KDE has announced KDE 4.8.2, a monthly maintenance update which targets ordinary users to provide bug fixes and translations updates. Again, this release is another great work from KDE developers who have been quite strict with their schedules lately.
For those who have been using Erik's packages, you can start mirroring his KTown repository as he has created packages as usual and posted on his blog.
For those that were anxious to see whether Pat will include KDE 4.8 or not in the latest Slackware release, there's a chance for that as mentioned on Erik's post that Pat has grabbed his SlackBuild script to generate an official packages for Slackware-Current which hopefully are newer than the one used by Erik's (if they have updated packages or so).
Next Slackware release will be a big release :)
