KDE The release of KDE 4.0 was not a smooth one, and left a number of users a bit disgruntled. Still, the release showed so much potential that it was oozing out of every pixel. KDE 4.1 improved significantly in many areas of concern, but it wasn't yet ready for everyone. With today's release of KDE 4.2, the KDE4 vision is ready to face not only developers and enthusiasts, but every users. We have taken a look at the release candidate for KDE 4.2, and we have a short interview with KDE's Aaron Seigo.

"(the only exception being 1.0)"

Which was my point. And no, GNOME 2.0 was not meant to be an unstable release, there has been a separate branch for this purpose (I believe it was 1.99 or something like that). Yes, .0 releases always tend to be unstable (GNOME 2.0 definitely was) because they are young, all I am saying is that I find it counter-intuitive and rather misguiding to assign a different meaning to 1.0 than to every other .0 release.
