I too would like to see 4.3.x packages appear in Current. I'm using 13.0 32-bit.

I'm not really doing a lot with KDE 4 other than using as a basic desktop for an HTPC. As a basic desktop things should be rock steady and this is not the case. Despite this nominal use, I have found 4.2.3 buggy and cantankerous. Reading the forum here indicates I'm not the only one who has found 4.2.3 buggy.

Browsing the 4.3.x change logs motivates me to update. I realize there are some dependency changes the devs need to consider, but I'm tapping my foot waiting for packages to appear in Current.

I'm using KDE 4 with my HTPC and will continue as such. I'm not opening the old arguments here about the merits of KDE 4. I only want a less buggy version. Not to mention that a few apps have been added to 4.3, such as Kdenlive. There is another thread addressing the issue of video editing and making home-brew DVDs. Folks using KDE want a KDE tool, not a GTK tool (DeVeDe).

I realize the dev crew needs and wants a rest period. I'm just hoping 4.3.1 packages appear soon in Current.

I'm using the official build scripts for 4.2 and adjusting them to compile 4.3.1.

I noticed that in the build order there is:
kdebase-workspace
kdebase
kdebase-workspace

Does anyone know why is kdebase-workspace being built twice?

4.2.3 is a typo for 4.2.4 right

What's stopping you from running Kdenlive with KDE 4.2.4? I'm running the latest svn releases here.

DeVeDe is nothing compared to Kdenlive. DeVeDe is a one-click-encoder. Kdenlive is a full blown NLE. There's a slew of QT based one-click-encoders and DVD Authoring applications. KMedia Factory is one that pops into my head without searching kde-apps.org or freshmeat.net.

Can't say I have any issues with KDE 4.2.4 and stability.
Code:
uptime
 14:25:42 up 26 days,  7:53, 10 users,  load average: 2.27, 2.22, 2.40
KDE has yet to crash on me in 26 days - that's pretty darn good in my book

I think there is a comment in the build script on why its done twice.

Oops, I missed that thanks.

Edit: Still not sure why its built twice though. All it says is "for good measure".

I just downloaded and upgraded/install new all the 4.3.1 pkgs from the above link. I did this on a test partition that is not fully up to date. Its not missing much, but so far, I have had no problems. K3b was not rebuilt in these packages, but it don't function very well anyway.

Nepomukmuk came up and indexed for less than a minute and then fell silent. I have no clue wtf akonadi is, so I don't know if it functions anyway.

So far, so good!

I downloaded libknotify from the link above, the build scripts from slackware.com and the source packs from kde.org.

Hi, I'm also trying currently these packages, and seems to work good, but not all features are complete, I think.
KDE wasn't able to install new icon themes, and other features from kdelook.org while using built-in dialogs.
Right after install, there was complete lack of icons on desktop, sidebars and in menus. I was able to restore those icons using Control Center, and now it's look good, but I was confused if the system is crashing, or just hang up...
