KDE 3.5.2 Is Out For Slackware

Hey, have you check out Slackware-current's latest changelog? KDE 3.5.2 are there and available to be downloaded. Too bad i'm not in the office, so i cannot download it and upgrade my Slackware. It consist of new Python packages also which works with DB 4.4.x. and also some upgrades for Multimedia packages, since new Amarok packages has been shipped also, although it's not the latest one, but i hope it will fix some problem i encountered in 1.3.8 with KDE 3.5.1.

The last line is surprising. Pat decided to remove Abiword from Slackware's packages, since newer version couldn't be compiled without GNOME (and Slackware doesn't support GNOME since 10.2). So... good bye Abiword.

Here are the latest changelog :

this package anyway.
