KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.8.3 available in qt-kde.debian.net


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 
Due to this partial upload [1], 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 

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 (debian-kde@lists.debian.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

[1] 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.
