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.

RE[4]: Should give it a try

Does it come with a compiler and build system?

I *thought* I'd use OpenSuSE but my LAN chip's not supported (Atheros L1e). Now that's not a problem per se, as Asus provides a driver. But the OpenSuSE CD apparently decided to skip all those unsexy tools necessary to get their sh*t working for more Web2.0-ready multimedia-somethings.
