KDE announced the availability of its Software Compilation 4.4, "Caikaku". You
will find all upstream changes and new features on their website:
http://kde.org/announcements/4.4/. As usual we provide the latest packages for
Arch. Unfortunately this update will need some user intervention due to a pacman
limitation. Therefore you have to update in two steps:

    % pacman -Sy --asdeps qt

    % pacman -Su

Be aware of the following problems that might occur:

  * The usage of bitmap fonts like terminus will be broken when using the
proprietary nvidia driver.

  * If you update from virtuoso 5 as nepomuk backend as it was provided in the
kde-unstable or testing repository you will have to convert your database
(http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=119661) or simply remove
~/.kde4/share/apps/nepomuk/repository/main/data/virtuosobackend. The latter is
of course only recommend if you had not used nepumuk's tagging and comment

  * In case of any error, try using a new user account or (re)moving KDE's
configuration which can be found at ~/.kde4 /tmp/kde-* /var/tmp/kdecache-*.
Akonadi saves its data at ~/.config/akonadi and ~/.local/share/akonadi

  * If you have problems updating kde-meta-kdepim, run "pacman -S --asdeps
