The KDE team officially released the sources for KDE Software Compilation 4.8.3 today. I grabbed the tarballs from the packagers site a few days earlier, so that I could again have a full set of Slackware packages for you.
The upgrade will be trivial. Slackware-current was enhanced very recently with KDE 4.8.2 and all the software updates which that move required. Apart from the 4.8.3 release sources, I only had to compile a newer version of libbluedevil and bluedevil, and even those two will be updated in Slackware too, very soon (perhaps Pat already pulled the trigger).
Get my packages here; the official Slackware packages will remain at version 4.8.2, while Pat and the team concentrate on other parts of the distro.
