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.

For anyone running openSUSE, the 4.2 packages are available from the KDE:/KDE4:/UNSTABLE repo. I've been running them for a few days, and the refinements are impressive. YMMV, so take this with a grain of salt since it's still developmental, but the packages are pretty solid. It's a shame that the upcoming release of openSUSE 11.1 missed the 4.2 freeze, but at least it will be easily available when released.
