no, there's no support for filtering by app version. No thought has gone into
that that I know of, though Marble and at least one other app have asked for
it (I can't remember which other one).
KDE 4.4 knewstuff just today got merged into kdelibs from the working branch I
started and frederik so graciously completed. There are still bugs to fix but
it's very much more usable. He also added a "installed" entry in the
combobox, so you can see all installed items and check for updates/uninstall
I hit the qt bug that makes kdelibs not build on 2 machines here today (I
chose the wrong day to update qt I guess) Anyway, once I downgrade my qt
checkout or whatever it takes to get stuff building again, I'll be testing kns3
as much as possible this weekend.
