Version: 4.6.0 (using KDE 4.6.1)
When I rename a file, I used to be able to use the up and down key to commit the name change and move to the next or previous file. This doesn't work anymore, I now have to press enter first.
Thanks for the report. I assume you use the "Rename Inline" mode for renaming?

In which KDE version were you able to do that? In KDE 4.4.4. (which I've just tried), Up and Down don't have any effect when renaming files.
Yes, inline renaming.
The up/down thing works in 3.5.10.
Thanks for the clarification. I'll reassign to Dolphin because Konqueror uses Dolphin's code for file management in KDE 4.
Resetting assignee to default as per bug #305719
what is more annoying, up and down arrow keys stop working at all after i commit inline file renaming with enter!

This is off-topic here, and looks like bug 301252. If you can still reproduce this in KDE 4.9.1 or later, please open a new bug report. Thanks!
I don't think this makes sense given that file names in icon view can be multi-line, and the up and down arrow keys can be used for navigation. This could only ever make sense in list or details view, where there is no concept of a multi-line file name.
There is a patch that would implement this: https://phabricator.kde.org/D20427
