KDE SC 4.8.2 available
The set of April updates for KDE SC 4.8.2 has been available for several days now, but it was not until today that it became available in my Chakra 2012.2 machine. As it is often the case, this last bugfix release brings more than just bug fixes, most notably improvements to Nepomuk and its CPU-hungry attitude, which by the way helped improve Akonadi mail indexing. I also noticed other small things getting fixed, like a strange behavior in the Add Widget popup dialog, which got typing focus if called from the desktop (right-click on Desktop > Add Widgets...) but not if called from the panel itself. In my experience, both work equally well now. Unfortunately, there are still some easy to notice minor issues. Dolphin animations got lost in the way to KDE SC 4.8.1 and it seems they are still missing (About 10 bug fixes for Dolphin made it to this minor release, though). For more information on this latest KDE SC update, please refer to the official ANNOUNCEMENT and/or the official CHANGELOG.
