KDE "KDE has released a release candidate of the upcoming 4.7 release of the Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Frameworks, which is planned for July 27, 2011. With API, dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing last-minute showstopper bugs and finishing translation and documentation that comes along with the releases." Focuses of this release are Kwin support for OpenGL-ES 2.0 (oooh purty!), an interface refresh for Dolphin, and loads of other stuff.

Compiling small programs is, in fact, not a pain at all. Compiling big, complex programs can be only because of (1) the time involved and (2) the fact that large projects have large dependency lists, some of which you may not have.

Properly written build scripts will make detecting depenencies that you need simple and compiling once you have them merely a matter of waiting (and not running out of disk space).

That said, I don't think KDE4 is a good place to start if you've never compiled your own software before.
