Hi, KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.8.3 has been uploaded to our semi-official mirrors (available for both, amd64 and i386, systems). Note that the upload currently only contains base packages of Plasma Workspaces. Due to this partial upload , the packages are considered experimental and targeted at experienced users of the unstable distribution. Users of debian testing might use them too, if apt-get/aptitude is not complaining about dependency problems. However, it is not recommended to use the repository on production systems. If you're fine with that, head over to http://qt-kde.debian.net for install instructions. Feedback is highly appreciated, since it will help getting these packages into the official archive. Especially report any issues during the upgrade process (i.e. file/dependency conflicts) or if you encounter any misbehavior in KDE applications, that used to work before the upgrade. As usual, please do *NOT* report bugs in the BTS against these semi-official packages. Use this mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the IRC support channel #debian-kde at irc.debian.org instead. P.S. Wether you decide to upgrade, or not: if you previously used /etc/apt/preferences.d/kde-experimental to upgrade to 4.7.4 from experimental, make sure to delete it, since it is not necessary for KDE SC 4.7.4 anymore and might cause trouble in future releases. Best regards Eshat, on behalf of the pkg-kde Team  The reason why the upgrade is not covering all KDE SC packages, is that we want to upload the packages to unstable in various batches to make the transitions to testing easier. A list of built 4.8.3 source packages can be found at http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian/. Also the kdeutils and kdeaccessibility packages were split into multiple small source packages with KDE SC 4.8, which implies some extra work, that has not been completed yet. -- eshat cakar web: www.eshat.de gpg-id: 799B 95D5
