KDE It slipped by us, but the KDE team has released another minor bugfix release of KDE 4.2, version 4.2.3, a few days ago. Being a bugfix release, there are few user-visible changes, but still, there are a few things that stand out. "Online IMAP filtering in KMail has been fixed, KMail's system tray icon now reacts to changes to folder properties and updates the number of emails shown there automatically, and bugfixes, performance improvements and optimization in KHTML - painting and interoperability with web standards has been further improved."

I'm not sure what Qt4 is doing that requires mondo graphics cards and drivers, because I certainly can't see it. And it doesn't matter which backend I use: OpenGL, Raster or regular/XRender -- it's still slow. So clearly it must be finding the most inefficient and least likely to be supported way of doing stuff that was already fast before. I don't see how that's an improvement.
