In the third of their monthly stabilisation updates to the 4.8 series of releases for the KDE Software Collection (KDE SC), the developers have improved the translations for many applications and have fixed several bugs. The KDE software components are already available in more than 55 languages and the developers are promising to add more in the future.

Bugs have been fixed in the rendering engine of the Dolphin browser, in the OpenGL graphics engine of KDE's KWin window manager and in the included Kontact Suite. Since the only changes in this release are translation improvements and bug fixes, the developers expect a smooth and easy upgrade for all users.

Further details on the changes can be found in the release announcement and the official change log. Downloads of source code and information on the distribution of binary packages can be found on the KDE SC 4.8.4 Info Page.

KDE is licensed under a combination of the LGPLv2, BSD, MIT and X11 licences for core libraries and the GPLv2 or GPLv3 for applications.
