I have the "current" kde pkg's installed, i.e. kde-3.1.2-i486 series. These pkg's are i386 at the slack-9 mirrors, although they are kde-3.1.3.

I was wondering if I should get the 3.1.3 series, or will the 3.1.3-kde pkg's be released for 'slack-current'?

Thanks, BC

Warning !!!
I downloaded KDE3.1.3 from one of KDE's mirrors (Slack *.tgz version), upgraded and reboot. And it occurs, that CUPS support is missing in kdelibs!!! Luckily I had kdelibs from 3.1.2 and I copied missing files from that manually. It works, but I wasted some time to workout, what's going on.
