KDE KDE 4.0 RC1 has been released. "The KDE Community is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first release candidate for KDE 4.0. This release candidate marks that the majority of the components of KDE 4.0 are now approaching release quality. While the final bits of Plasma, the brand new desktop shell and panel in KDE 4, are falling into place, the KDE community decided to publish a first release candidate for the KDE 4.0 Desktop. Release Candidate 1 is the first preview of KDE 4.0 which is suitable for general use and discovering the improvements that have taken place all over the KDE codebase. The KDE Development Platform, comprising the basis for developing KDE applications, is frozen and is now of release quality." You want see Plasma panel? You get see Plasma panel!

If you wait until it's finished and stable before releasing, developers lose interest and you get E17.

Well hopefully if the gOS can be successful, and 10,000 sales of the gPC at Wal-Mart is any indication, perhaps that might help motivate the E17 developers to finishing their product.

Wouldn't count on it. They have a vision almost comparable to what KDE 4 wants, but lack the resources to even do what Gnome wants...
