KDE The KDE team has released the first beta of KDE 4.2, slated for release coming January. Quite a lot of new features have been added, as well as lots of bug fixes and performance improvements. This release also makes a lot of strides to feature parity with KDE 3.x, by adding those small little features that KDE 3.x users are barely aware of, but which were missed in KDE 4.0/4.1, such as taskbar grouping, multiple rows in the taskbar, panel auto-hiding, a traditional icon desktop through 'full-screen' foderview, and so on.

Nah, he missed the flame from a KDE fanboy saying KDE is stable, its the linux distro's faulty packages of KDE which are unstable.

Compare to and see for yourself that Kubuntu ships broken KDE packages. It has also been acknowledged by a Kubuntu team member that the KDE packages are at least partially (and I quote from ) "crippled".

Thanks a lot. See you on openSUSE -- offering the "best KDE 4 experience" (quote from ArsTechnica: ).

Yes, I'd got the impression that Ubuntu had been forcing their own methods like Rosetta on upstream code for quite a while. I feel for Harald Sitter, because he obviously knows the situation is a pile of hurt. I have no idea at all why Ubuntu thinks that doing their own translations in favour of the upstream ones is a good idea when l10n testing and development is at a premium anyway. It makes the upstream translators look bad as well, and probably wonder why they bother.
