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.

Good to hear that HAL has finally been removed - it seems that every time I had an issue with Linux it could always be traced back to HAL. Hopefully the move away from HAL should also correspond to a decline in power usage given that there will no longer be a daemon sitting in the background constant polling for devices.

Any word on the NetworkManager/KDE integration? I remember there was some work being done on a Plasma front end but I haven't kept up on the current status of the project. Any word on its completion? I don't want to go out trying to find source code off a SVN to compile when it would be easier to use a stable package that is feature complete rather than in a state of flux.
