"The KDE Windows team is delighted to announce the release of
Windows packages from KDE Software Compilation 4.5.4. This release
is doubly important because it returns the KDE Windows Initiative
to the headlines after a lot of hard background work, and because
it brings the some of the latest KDE software to Windows users.
"Although still not considered stable and suitable for
production work, this release brings to the table a lot of new
improvements worth trying:
* All the goodness brought by KDE SC 4.5;
* All the bugfixes brought by the 4.5.4 minor release and six
months of work from the KDE Windows team;
* The lastest version of Phonon-VLC backend is available.
"Support for two new compilers has also been added: mingw-w32, a
more updated distribution of GCC for Windows provided by the
mingw-w64 project, and vc100, the Microsoft compiler provided in
Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition. These, in the future, will
respectively replace mingw4 and vc90 (both of which are however
supported in this release)."
