KDE KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal' people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release, they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace". Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new stuff coming in KDE 4.1.

This lookes really good. I remember the first time I heard about KDE4 a long time ago, and thought of a KWin with built-in compositioning, and here it is ;) Not to mention the other new stuff that was shown in the video! I was, and still am a little reserved towards the idea of splitting up Konqueror, but Dolphin looks nice. Hope I can get used to not have web-tabs and filemgmt.-tabs in the same app... Well, time will tell, and I supposed the stability and functionality also will be improved with time ;)
