Just two days ago the guys at KDE released the latest monthly update to the KDE SC 4.5.x series. As usual, KDE SC 4.5.2 is mostly a bugfix release, but this time around it includes some neat enhancements. Here is a list of highlights (from KDE.ORG):
4.5.2 brings a number of improvements:
- KSharedDataCache, the new performance tool has seen scalability and performance improvements.
- Performance of loading icons has been improved by better use of the new shared data cache.
- The display of tooltips in Dolphin has been fixed in certain cases where it would display outdated previews.
- KWin and especially its compositing manager has seen some optimizations and bugfixes for specific filters.

You can further read about these and other enhancements and bugfixes from the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT and the (almost) complete CHANGE LOG for this release.
As a PCLinuxOS user I got these updates even before the release announcement went live (now, ain´t that sweet). If you are using KDE SC 4.5 series I very much encourage you to update to 4.5.2. It should bring stability and performance without any impact otherwise.
Thanks for reading
