So, this March, KDE 4.12.3 has been released and as previous update, this update only applies to KDE Applications, since the workspace has been frozen since 4.11.x, although there is a new kde-workspace 4.11.7 for this release. Full changes about this release can be seen here.
Besides updating all KDE core packages, Eric Hameleers also give a surprise by updating several other packages like mentioned on his blog post:
Apart from all-new versions for the core applications, I also updated the oxygen-gtk2 and plasma-nm (and libnm-qt, libmm-qt) packages. I was unable to compile the latest oxygen-gtk3 release because Slackware’s GTK+-3 package is too old.I have tested this new kdeconnect application, but the only think i can do with my Z1 is ping and multimedia control (using VLC). The other features are not yet listed on my phone (some requires a laptop, such as battery status).
There is one interesting addition! There is a new package called kdeconnect-kde. Together with the kdeconnect-android app for your smartphone or tablet (no iPhone, surely you don’t own one??) it “fuses” your KDE desktop with your mobile device.
