KDE Ships June Updates to Applications, Platform and Plasma Workspaces
June 10, 2014. Today KDE released updates for its Applications and Development Platform, the second in a series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.13 series. This release also includes an updated Plasma Workspaces 4.11.10. Both releases contain only bugfixes and translation updates, providing a safe and pleasant update for everyone.
More than 40 recorded bugfixes include improvements to Personal Information Management suite Kontact, Umbrello UML Modeller, the Desktop search functionality, web browser Konqueror and the file manager Dolphin.
A more complete list of changes can be found in KDE's issue tracker.
Additional and noteworthy: this release of KDE Applications includes a number of important fixes for Kopete: a decrease in the exit time of Kopete with enabled statistics plugin, a fix for the compilation of jabber libjingle for non x86 architectures and another fix for voice call support in the jabber libjingle library. Without this last fix, voice calls worked only with the old Google Talk windows jingle client. Now after applying the patches it was tested with GMail web plugin, old Google Talk windows client, telepathy-gabble and other Kopete versions.
