The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.0.3, the third generation of KDE's free, powerful desktop for Linux and other UNIXes. KDE 3.0.3 is available in 50 languages and ships with the core KDE libraries, the base desktop environment, an integrated development environment, and hundreds of applications and other desktop enhancements from the other KDE base packages (PIM, administration, network, edutainment, development, utilities, multimedia, games, artwork, and others).

KDE 3.0.3 primarily provides stability enhancements over KDE 3.0.2, which shipped in eary July 2002, and also contains a security correction for SSL (Internet security) certificate handling. For a list of some changes since KDE 3.0.2, please see the change log, and for additional information about the SSL certificate handling, please see the separate security advisory.

"KDE 3.0.3 contains an important fix for handling SSL certificates," explained Waldo Bastian, the KDE developer responsible for implementing a fix shortly after the KDE Project became aware of the issue. "Anyone who uses Konqueror for secure transactions on the Internet is strongly urged to upgrade. Users of Internet Explorer, which suffers from the same problem but which does not yet have a fix available, are also encouraged to switch to KDE 3.0.3."
