The KDE Project just announced the second Beta release of the new 4.12 version of Applications and the KDE Development Platform.The second Beta version of KDE 4.12 has arrived fairly quickly after the previous update and it’s all about bug fixes and polishing.
"With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the focus is now on fixing bugs and further polishing. Your assistance is requested.”
“This release does not include Plasma Workspaces, which was frozen for new features in 4.11.x. In addition, the Development Platform has seen only minor changes for a number of releases in anticipation of KDE Frameworks 5. So this release is mainly about improving and polishing KDE Applications,” reads the official announcement.
