KDE 4.6.5 is Available for Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal!

It was actually last month when the KDE 4.6.4 was released and after like 3-4 weeks the KDE team has updated the world famous Qt written KDE desktop to the version 4.6.5 yesterday. Although just like with the previous version this also does not bring any major features but only seems to carry the usual bug-fixes.

If you use KDE as your primary desktop and the version 4.6.x then it is recommended to do the upgrade which should do few "patches" and few language translation fixes as well. According to the Change-log page few bug fixes of apps such as Juk (a music player application for KDE), Sweeper related bugs (a utility to clean history and other "user traces"), KDE Pacman game related bug fixes, etc are included. Nothing major it seems though. 

These updates (according to KDE developers themselves) are a part of "strengthening" the KDE 4.6x series which was introduced around January (2011) that brought significant changes to the desktop and its applications.

The Plasma Netbook edition...
Starting with an optimized mobile version (which uses less system resources, etc), powerful Semantic backup capabilities using GUI (thanks to the NEPOMUK - a metadata handler across different networks/devices), better GTK+ theme compatibility in Qt-KDE environment, Oxy-Gen theme improvements and a powerful framework for handling Bluetooth devices are just a few to mention.

Anyhow, if you use Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal then you'll be glad to know that the Kubuntu team has also released pre-build packages simultaneously with this KDE release. If you haven't already added the PPA, then you can install or upgrade to KDE 4.6.5 version in Kubuntu 11.04 by using the below commands in your Terminal window.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade
