KDE

And this is the second part of the future of KDE. We already covered part one.

This is the second half of the 'where KDE is going' write-up. Last week, I discussed what is happening with KDE's technologies: Platform is turning modular in Frameworks, Plasma is moving to new technologies and the Applications change their release schedule. In this post, I will discuss the social and organizational aspects: our governance.

I'm not sure what they will do with the release. The last Beta was put out June 10th so its almost been a month.

In any case, they are releasing it before it reaches feature parity with 4. So for that reason alone, I'd agree that most casual users would be better off waiting.

Now users that enjoy bug hunts to improve software? Those should install when released, if not sooner.

It would be nice to say that this was an open source only issue, but with Microsoft, Apple, and Google providing early access to operating systems its becoming much more common for users to decide when software is ready for them.
