KDE Before we get underway: I'm sorry, we don't have enough headline space to write 'KDE Releases Development Platform, Applications and Plasma Workspaces 4.6.0'. Then again, do any non-anal people every refer to it that way? No? I thought so. In any case, there's a new KDE version out with lots of new features, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.

Removal of dependency on HAL. HAL is no longer required.

Improvements in the Bluetooth stack. Long overdue.

Phonon support for pulseaudio. Xine is no longer supported as a backend for Phonon, it is recommended to use either gstreamer or VLC backends instead.

Changes to the Oxygen icon theme and better integration of applications not built on the KDE Platform thanks to a completely rewritten Oxygen GTK theme.

There have been some improvements in KDE accessability, although there is apparently still no built-in support for speech-to-text.
