KDE "The long-awaited KDE 4.0.0 was released last week as scheduled. Even though the expectations - following a couple of less than convincing release candidates - weren't very high and the consensus was that the first release of KDE 4 would be more of a 'technology preview' than a usable desktop environment for general deployment, it's hard not to see the enormous amount of good work that has gone into the new code. As Kubuntu's Jonathan Riddell put it, KDE 4 is the start of something amazing and this is possibly the best definition of the current release - it's here, it's available, but it's nowhere near ready for the prime time. It's a decent start, though. Unsurprisingly, the reaction of distributions was a mixed bag. Below is a summary of information about the availability of KDE 4.0.0 in various distributions."

Just for reference the Debian KDE 4 portal, and KDE Team site is here:

http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde4.html

There's FAQs and other goodies there. Also, there is a bit of general Debian KDE chatter here:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/

So far the Debain KDE packages seem quite good, I'm running KDE 4.0.0 from 'experimental'-- With KDEPim from 3.5, and the other big 3rd party apps from KDE 3. Everything seems to be living happily together.
