Today the KDE team has released the third maintenance of KDE SC 4.6. The release – KDE SC 4.6.3 – is a minor update and brings with it only bug fixes and translation updates. KDE SC 4.6 includes updates to Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Frameworks. There are no new features included in this release though. Since there are no new features, this is considered a safe update and according to the KDE team, it is recommended that everyone running KDE 4.6 should update.
KDE SC 4.6.3 is available for users od OpenSUSE 11.3 and OpenSUSE 11.4. For Ubuntu and Kubuntu users, it is not yet available and is expected to be available this weekend. To get the update when it is available add the kubuntu-backport PPA with the command given below:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backport

The KDE team has dedicated this release to the daughter of KDE developer Daniel Nicoletti.
The 4.6.3 release is dedicated in memory of the young daughter of KDE developer Daniel Nicoletti who tragically passed away after a car crash last month. The KDE community wishes to express their deepest sympathy and support to Daniel and his family in this difficult time.
