KDE Earlier this year, the KDE team released the highly-anticipated 4th major revision of the KDE desktop. Instead of bringing evolutionary changes, KDE 4.0 effectively delivered a complete rewrite of KDE, and as a consequence the first release of the KDE 4 branch lacked a lot of features of KDE 3.x, while also being quite unstable and rough. Many even complained the KDE team shouldn't have released KDE 4.0 as 4.0, but rather as a developer preview release or something similar. During this storm of criticism, the KDE team calmly pointed out that KDE 4.1 would fix many, many of the issues people had with KDE 4.0. Starting today, there's no more pointing towards KDE 4.1: KDE 4.1 has been released today.

Currently the version of webkit included with Qt is not really up to snuff for full scale browsing.

e.g. it doesn't support netscape plugins so no embedded video and no flash either. Webkit atm is pretty much for simple applications that want to mix Qt widgets with web layouts...in KDE's case plasma.

According to the Qt devs 4.5 will allow full browsing with all of the holes in functionality filled. Having said that there is a webkit kpart somewhere...
