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.

Hi,
I'm the ksysguard maintainer.

I personally run Linux and rely on others to add the support for the other operating systems. Switching from KDE3 to KDE4 meant that the (very small number of) bsd developers were extremely busy, hence the lack of proper freebsd support. There are many areas of ksysguard that need some serious modernization, and it's just been a race against time to fix the more serious problems ;)

I plan to try to install a virtual machine to install the dozen (!) or so different operating systems that ksysguard 3 supported. This should allow me to produce a more consistent result across any OS.

Btw, comments and suggestions for ksysguard are always welcome.
