KDE 4.11.2 for Slackware-Current (14.1)

It's a new month and KDE developers has finished polishing KDE 4.11.2 and released it yesterday after they pushed the sources to the packagers a week before. It's now available on their mirror sites and also to several distributions, including Slackware, which is packaged by Eric Hameleers.

This KDE version is a bug fix version, so no new features are added, just bug fixes and translations updates. You can see all the list of bug fixed on this releases by going through their Bug Tracker. It contains more than 70 bugfixes, including improvements to the Window Manager KWin, the file manager Dolphin, the personal information management suite Kontact, and others.

KDE 4.11.2 will be offered to Slackware-Current (14.1) users only, not available for previous Slackware release (14.0), so it's recommended to upgrade to -current if you haven't done so since the release of Slackware 14.1 is also getting closer.

Eric is also adding three new packages in order to test the new networkmanagement widget which is going to be included in the next KDE major release.

As always, the binary packages are available through several mirrors:
Enjoy KDE packages and again, big thanks to Eric Hameleers for providing this packages.
