UPDATE: 4.3.1 is now unmasked for amd64/x86 and the masking issue has been fixed by jmbsvicetto, so we won’t have this issue again in the future! The post below is updated to reflect on it.
The first bugfix release for KDE 4.3, 4.3.1, is now available.
You can read about the improvements it brings here.
Ebuilds for KDE 4.3.1 are already available in gentoo for architectures amd64 and x86.
To upgrade from 4.3.0 you simply need to
emerge -avDuN world
This should be a straightforward update for most people.
If you’re upgrading from an older KDE 4 version (or clean-installing KDE 4 on a stable system) you should keyword-unmask KDE 4.3 by following this post’s instructions. You’ll also find some troubleshooting hints there.
The ebuilds are hard.masked for all other architectures due to bug 280312.
