It's not a bugfix release, it's a bit ingenuous to describe it as one.
KDE make major changes between 4.x and 4.y. The bugfix releases are one
level down. 4.2.1 vs. 4.2 is a bugfix release, but 4.3 vs. 4.2.1 is not.
It's exactly the same as the GNOME situation - 2.24.1 vs. 2.24.0 is a
bugfix update, 2.26.0 vs. 2.24.1 is not. Most distributions would not
bump KDE from 4.2 to 4.3 in their stable update repositories.
