KDE The KDE team has released the first beta of KDE 4.2, slated for release coming January. Quite a lot of new features have been added, as well as lots of bug fixes and performance improvements. This release also makes a lot of strides to feature parity with KDE 3.x, by adding those small little features that KDE 3.x users are barely aware of, but which were missed in KDE 4.0/4.1, such as taskbar grouping, multiple rows in the taskbar, panel auto-hiding, a traditional icon desktop through 'full-screen' foderview, and so on.

Proper translucency in Konsole is there in 4.2 beta 1:

Settings -> Edit Current Profile

Appearance Tab -> Click on the Edit button the Color Scheme section.

Move the opacity slider ...

Depending on the phase of the moon, you may need to restart Konsole for the translucency to kick in.

But it is there, and it does work. Huzzah.
