It is only a couple of days after the release of KDE SC 4.5 Beta 1 and openSUSE brings you an update with a newer snapshot. This snapshot resolves the issues reported with the systray, as that it contains the latest version of libdbusmenu-qt. So if you are facing issues with right clicking on the icons in the systray or some other erreoneuous behavior, then this update might solve those issues for you.

Also with this new version a new KDE bindings is released, namely perl-kde4. Unfortunately due to the required perl version, this package is only build for openSUSE Factory repository. This to prevent that 11.1 and 11.2 users have to upgrade their perl5 version which might cause incompatibility issues with other applications.

The version of the new snapshot is 4.4.81 and is availalble now.



Since yesterday the KDE SC 4.5 Beta 1 packages are available through the openSUSE OBS. They are available in the KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop repository. As announced, this Beta contains the KDEPIM packages from KDE SC 4.4 due to the delay in the conversion to Akonadi. However if you feel really brave, then also the KDEPIM 4.5 packages are available in a subproject (KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop:kdepim45).

The kdepim45 packages will receive daily updates from svn, while the KDE SC 4.5 Desktop will receive weekly updates. Once openSUSE 11.3 has been released, KDE SC 4.5 will be moved to the KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop repository.
