KDE "KDE has released a release candidate of the upcoming 4.7 release of the Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Frameworks, which is planned for July 27, 2011. With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing last-minute showstopper bugs and finishing translation and documentation that comes along with the releases." Focuses of this release are Kwin support for OpenGL-ES 2.0 (oooh purty!), an interface refresh for Dolphin, and loads of other stuff.

KDE is not a Linux distribution. KDE4 live demo DVD do not seem to exist anymore. It was nice to have before KDE4 was usable to see the progress, but there is no point now. It was never intended to be a fully supported distribution, but rather a proof of progress. If you want to try KDE, the best way is to create a separated user account and use the cmakekdefull bash script or something else to compile it for you. Like that you will have an "unstable" KDE version trapped into an user account (no real installation required).
