KDE 4.5 is due to be released in the very near future.

Here are some screenshots for anyone who might be interested:

I found KDE 4.5 RC2 a lot more stable than I expected it to be(for a testing version). Though there are not as many ‘new’ features as usually there are with a major KDE release,the amount of stability is very impressive. This version will surely succeed in silencing the Kritics who are still calling KDE 4 slow,buggy and hard to use. Also when it comes to usability, devs have paid attention to those ‘little things’ which matter. KDE 4.5 is surely the desktop of the future, in case you haven’t switched what are you waiting for?
