Post Upgrade of qt to 4.6.3 now in the main test community repository
This is an update to the core libraries underlying the KDE 4 desktop, so I thought it warrants an announcement, and would really like some feedback if anyone has trouble with it.

It will allow us to keep updating many QT based applications for the community repo. I have noticed that openGL desktop compositing is much more fluid on my Intel GMA 4500 graphics card now, at least until I stop and restart compositing, when it seems to regress for some odd reason.

One issue I can think of, if you have created symlinks to the system QT 4.5.3 libraries for Google Earth, they will have to be redone to point to the 4.6 equivalents.

I've already got the latest Stellarium built with it--and I think now we can keep up with Scribus-ng releases, too.

Just one minor temporary issue here.

The system requires a logout/login or reboot after installing. The symptom is that clicking on a text file gives a missing KDE text element error while trying to open Kwrite. Kwrite runs fine opened from the menu or cli.

Reooting, Logging Out & In, or the equivalent via <ctrl><alt><bkspc> repairs the problem.

I noticed the same problem (M8.5 32bit).

Installed on my desktop without issue (other than the logoff/login step already mentioned in this thread). Thanks!
