On Tuesday evening i updated to 4.2 on my Opensuse
11.1. I will just note a
1. Dependency Issues when updating. Some KDE 4.1.3 packages just will
refuse to be replaced and complain but if you look closely you can find a n
easy solution to the dependency issues
Some packages are not ported from KDE 4.1.3 from opensuse11.1
kio_sysinfo for example, or compiz-kde4 is troublesome too I heard.
It mostly works out by removing the things that stop you from updating, if you
can live without them that is
2. Performance - Holy Cow - after the reboot after
updating (logout - login
was not enough) - i just couldn't believe my eyes. The System was flying.
It is highly reactive and just showed me how slow KDE 4.1 and 3.5 were in
comparison. I never really missed the performance before because i never
had it but i dont want to go back. Great Job.
I didn't see such a great leap, but it sure is very responsive nontheless
4. So far no problems with programms running and the
startup Time of
programms is greatly reduced on my system.
True, incredible how good it worked out to bring KDE4.2 to opensuse11.1
I hope this will be used as example to push updated versions of other
applications into a semi official repository using the buildservice, quite
like current KDE4:Factory where bugreports are valid in bugzilla.novell.com
this should help testing parts of factory before jumping in too early into a
factory alpha where certain parts might be broken (openoffice in 11.1beta4
comes to my mind)
My heartfelt Congratulations to all the KDE Devs - keep up the good work
and KDE 4.3 will be close to World Domination.
/me agrees, good work indeed
