KDE 4.12.1 for Slackware-current

Last week I uploaded packages for KDE SC 4.11.5 and those were targeting Slackware 14.1. A solid and safe update of KDE for the stable release of Slackware, a wise choice.

KDE 4.12 is available

That version of OpenJDK called itself “Java7 Update 40 Build 31” aka openjdk-7u40_b31. It took a while for Oracle […]
