The next bug fix release is out, announcement is here.

I see that the main SuSE ftp site has new packages already, I assume that the mirrors will be synced by tomorrow, with minor package updates over the next few weeks (judging by past experience).

And presumably Konqueror's still only half-usable unless you have icon view on by default? Crying or Very sad

There does still seem to be a tendency for the filemanager view to revert to icons, but only on removable devices using a system:/ URI. Remove the system: part and it holds it's mode. This would appear to be a kioslave bug rather than a fault of Konqueror, and certainly removes a lot less than 50% of its usability Smile

I've noticed another bug/feature with this. When viewing a directory of images in icon view via a system:/ URI, no image previews are shown. Delete the system: part and Konqueror starts showing previews.

Only if you add the correct repositories to your configuration.

I have it installed now, seems one fine, even one new feature, or at least one I have not seen before.

A repository is a location, usually on an ftp server, but it could be http, where software packages are stored along with files that enable you to integrate the repository as a software resource for downloading and installation, with automatic resolution of dependencies (where possible).

How do you do that? Would probably be your next question. This has been dealt with quite a number of times before on these forums and you could do a search, or just look here.

Texstar had KDE3.5.2 in PCLinuxOS unstable before its official release, and moved the builds to the public servers on the day of the release.

KDE3.5.2 seems to have cured a bug in PCLOS re KDE Screensavers. The KDE Dictionary panel applet deals with narrow panels better, it seems a bit snappier. No complaints at all from me!
