KDE Before we get underway: I'm sorry, we don't have enough headline space to write 'KDE Releases Development Platform, Applications and Plasma Workspaces 4.6.0'. Then again, do any non-anal people every refer to it that way? No? I thought so. In any case, there's a new KDE version out with lots of new features, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.

you could just write "KDE SC". You know, the official name that isn't long at all.

Yea, there is nothing wrong with the naming. KDE is trying to move from a Desktop environement to a Mozilla like entity while keeping the KDE brand. With more and more focus on mobile and tablet, the Desktop part is a lesser and lesser important part of KDE. It is not even a separated part of KDE anymore, it is just a placement layout for Plasmoids.

So, don't call it "KDE desktop". Just call it KDE ;-)

Seeing that Thom has had no problem getting it right in earlier posts I just can't take his "criticism" seriously. And dividing release notes in related categories makes it harder to read them? Boy, I'd much rather read a four page block of text without any kind of categorizing. Constructive criticism is always a good thing, pointless bashing of software for made up reasons, however, is not.
