KDE

Today KDE released updates for its Workspaces, Applications, and Development Platform.

These updates are the last in a series of monthly stabilization updates to the 4.9 series. 4.9.4 updates bring many bugfixes and translation updates on top of the latest edition in the 4.9 series and are recommended updates for everyone running 4.9.3 or earlier versions. As the release only contains bugfixes and translation updates, it will be a safe and pleasant update for everyone.

The list of 71 recorded bugfixes include improvements in the Dolphin file manager and Kontact email and groupware client. KDE's development platform has received a number of updates which affect multiple applications.

The changes are listed on KDE's issue tracker. For a detailed list of changes that went into 4.9.4, you can browse the Subversion and Git logs. 4.9.4 also ships a more complete set of translations for many of the 55+ supported languages.
