View Full Version : [kubuntu] KDE 4.1.1 Is out

September 4th, 2008, 05:14 PM
The KDE and Kubuntu developers are doing a great job. It may have a little bugs, but it's far better than the first KDE4.0

Check it out on the official KDE website:

As they say:

"The most significant changes are:
* Significant performance, interaction and rendering correctness improvements in KHTML and Konqueror, KDE's webbrowser
* User interaction, rendering and stability fixes in Plasma, the KDE4 desktop shell
* PDF backend fixes in the document viewer Okular
* Fixes in Gwenview, the image viewer's thumbnailing, more robust retrieval and display of images with broken metadata
* Stability and interaction fixes in KMail"

Great job, keep going!

Thanks for the heads-up, I'm quite new to KDE but is has really impressed me so far. Keep up the great work :)

I've uploaded KDE 4.1.1 and I was stunned by the graphics and presentation. On a practical level, however, it isn't so great. The volume controls on my laptop won't work, neither will the screen brightness controls. The animated menu system is a right pain to use. I bet you any money you'll get fed up with it - like I did.

Great concept, but needs some more work in my opinion.

For those who don't know, there's a site containing new themes, wallpapers, widgets, etc, for KDE4 (and KDE3 as well):


I really like the "Brainstorm" section, the ideas are just great
