KDE SC 4.7.3 arrives with Nepomuk fixes
The KDE Community has released version 4.7.3 of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC), the third point update to the 4.7.x branch of the open source K Desktop Environment. As expected, this maintenance release to the Linux and Unix desktop includes various translation updates and bug fixes; no new features have been added.
According to the developers, the update improves the stability and performance of applications that use the Nepomuk semantic framework and fixes several crashing bugs. Other changes include fixes for KGpg, the KWin window manager, the Okular universal document viewer and KGeography, the project's "geography learning tool". The update is recommended for users running all earlier versions of KDE.
Further information about the update can be found in the release announcement, in the change log and on the KDE 4.7.3 Info Page. Source packages for self-compilation and binary packages for various Linux distributions are available to download from the project's web site. KDE is licensed under a combination of LGPLv2, BSD, MIT and X11 licences for the core libraries and the GPLv2 or GPLv3 for applications.
