when will the 4.4 release be integrated with KDE4?
Will KDE4.0 be built on Qt4.4 or will they stay with an older release.

Given that new KDE technologies such as phonon are in this new Qt release I would expect it to be used in KDE4 fairly well straight away (once it is officially released).

Anyone have more info?

KDE 4.0 is being developed against Qt 4.3 as it is due for release in January, and 4.4 is not expected until the end of Q1 2008. KDE 4 applications developed against 4.3 should work with Qt 4.4 libraries without any source code changes or recompilation since Qt releases are binary compatible during their life-time.

There isn't any "integration" required, so to speak.

Yes but for how long will KDE be "handicapped" by Qt 4.3 ? I mean it seems that it would be best if they used what the Qt provides instead of maintaining their own.
