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.

I've just updated to 4.0.2 on Kubuntu 7.10 and KDE 4 is definitely shaping up nicely! I still don't think that it's ready for the masses, but it looks like it might be there by 4.1. Things are a bit snappier on my little Eee, and there seem to be a few less glitches. Also, I love the resizing of the panel (you really need that with an Eee). Hopefully other developers will start trying this new KDE out, because it's a programmers dream. By the way, if you haven't voted for better KDE support on Kubuntu, the link is http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/478
