Filed under
PCLOS

The guys at Fedora plan to release their RC compilation for the new Fedora 13 tomorrow, May 6th. I have been waiting (im)patiently to get my hands on the almost finished product and get a taste of the goods. While I was waiting, much to my surprise, I have seen the PCLinuxOS team has released a bug fix/enhancement version of their much acclaimed PCLinuxOS 2010 KDE.

The list of new features and fixes is once again impressive and can be read in full from their official ANNOUNCEMENT. Here are the highlights:

- Linux kernel updated to 2.6.32.12-bfs
- KDE SC Desktop upgraded to version 4.4.3 (AMAZING, the announcement has not even been published on KDE.ORG yet!!!
- Improved support for several Wifi and Video cards, as well as Webcams.
- General application update including security enhancements and bug fixes.
