KDE SC 4.12 gets January update

The KDE community has announced the updates for KDE SC 4.12 series. According to the community blog, “Starting with the next Applications and Development Platform release, 4.12.2, there will also be a maintenace release of Workspaces 4.11.6. This release contains only bugfixes and translation updates; it will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone.”

So what’s new?

The KDE community’s blog post says:

With more than 45 improvements, including to the Personal Information Management suite Kontact, the UML tool Umbrello, the document viewer Okular, the web browser Konqueror, the file manager Dolphin. Umbrello standardizes the global, diagram and widget settings and adds a clone diagram function. Dolphin received a fix to a bug that slowed down PDF preview under certain circumstances. In Kontact, several bugs and regressions were fixed in the KOrganizer, Akregator and KMail components.

If you are still running KDE SC 4.11 you can easily upgrade it to KDE SC 4.12 (depends on which distro you are running, if you are on openSUSE, check this post, if you are on Kubuntu, then check this one).
