KDE Ars takes a look at KDE 4.0.2. "When KDE 4.0 was officially released in January, there were a lot of gaping holes in basic functionality. During the past few months, the codebase has matured considerably, and the environment is steadily approaching the point where it will be sufficiently robust for widespread day-to-day use. Although there are still many features missing, version 4.0.2 - which was released last week - offers an improved user experience. We tested KDE 4.0.2 with the recently released Kubuntu 8.04 alpha 6." In addition, there is a new 'visual changelog' for KDE 4.1.

RE: Desktop toolbox

As has already been stated Aaron has decreed the toolbox is not going away. Check his blog for more detailed information. This has been a bit of a bone of contention within KDE as well as with those of us on the "outside." I decided it was a futile argue the point so I took Aaron's advice and just created my own plasmoid that was devoid of the darn cashew. (Or more accurately stripped it out of the current desktop plasmoid.) There really is not a lot of code involved. It took me longer to figure out how to replace the root plasmoid than it did to strip out the toolbox in the first place. On that note I must compliment the KDE team for some really clean code and nice APIs. (I still hate the toolbox though.)

I am sure it will break soon given the active development in the area, but I will just "fix" it again next time I decide to try KDE 4 for a while.
