KDE Software Compilation 4.5 RC 2 Available For Kubuntu 10.04

The second release candidate of KDE Software Compilation 4.5 is now available in the Kubuntu Beta Backports for Kubuntu 10.04.

KDE SC 4.5 RC2 was released three days ago. It features only bug fixes from the RC1. This will be the last release candidate before the final release is made later.

Some new features in KDE SC 4.5 includes:

  • New blur effect in KWin.
  • New Tiling feature in KWin.
  • New notification system.
New Notification With Blur Effect

Unfortunately a complete changelog for KDE SC 4.5 RC2 has not been released. (Maybe they are all busy with Akademy.)

If you are already using the RC1, you will get RC2 through a normal update.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Otherwise, if you are using KDE SC 4.4.x, you have to add the Kubuntu Beta Backports PPA and do a dist-upgrade.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/beta
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
