8.102. kdesdk

Updated kdesdk packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The kdesdk packages contain the KDE Software Development Kit (SDK) which is a collection of applications and tools used by developers. These applications and tools include - cervisia: a CVS frontend; kate: an advanced text editor; kbugbuster: a tool to manage the KDE bug report system; kcachegrind: a browser for data produced by profiling tools (for example cachegrind); kompare: a diff tool; kuiviewer: a tool for displaying a designer's UI files; lokalize: a computer-aided translation system focusing on productivity and performance; and umbrello: a UML modeller and UML diagram tool.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the umbrello UML modeller used logic based on recursive calls. As a consequence if a user created a diagram that had dependency graph cycles, umbrello entered an infinite loop and terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, the application logic has been changed to use stack-based parent resolution. As a result, umbrello no longer terminates in the described scenario.
Prior to this update, the kompare utility hid underscore characters located at the bottom of a highlighted difference block when using certain fonts. This update fixes this bug. As a result, kompare correctly displays underscore characters in the described situation.
Users of kdesdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
