KDE This is a response to the article yesterday on the progress of GNOME and KDE. Aaron Seigo, a lead KDE developer, sets out the current state of progress with KDE 4, pointing out that KDE 4 is on track for a release in mid 2007. "Thom points to a quote from me that our goal is to have a 4.0 ready sometime in the first half of next year. That gives us until sometime in June and I'm still thinking we can make it."

Who cares?

Who cares if KDE4 arrives on time or not? What should be important is:

- KDE development is far from stalling. Quite the opposite, the truth is the pace of development has been increasing in the last months. The task of hand is a big one, that's why it's obviously taking time.

- Once it's out, it fulfills what its developers had envisioned for it. It really makes no sense to rush its release date. More crucial, KDE4 will be the platform of choice for many apps, whether they are ported from KDE3, or brand new apps. Because of that, it's very important to get it right.
