KDE Ars takes a look at KDE 4.0.2. "When KDE 4.0 was officially released in January, there were a lot of gaping holes in basic functionality. During the past few months, the codebase has matured considerably, and the environment is steadily approaching the point where it will be sufficiently robust for widespread day-to-day use. Although there are still many features missing, version 4.0.2 - which was released last week - offers an improved user experience. We tested KDE 4.0.2 with the recently released Kubuntu 8.04 alpha 6." In addition, there is a new 'visual changelog' for KDE 4.1.

Support for Mac OS X widgets

One interesting new Plasma feature mentioned in the article, although not yet implemented in KDE 4.0.2, is support for Mac OS X widgets.

KDE 4 still seems too buggy to be used (at least by me) as my main desktop environment. But as bugs get fixed, and things are improved all the time, I could very well imagine switching from Gnome and XFCE to KDE 4 in the future. (Especially as I don't always like some directions that Gnome has taken, like the removal of configuration options from many apps etc. although the desktop environment seems ever more resource hungry in spite of that.)
