Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Jonathan Riddell, lead developer of the Kubuntu project and the only person paid by Canonical to work on the KDE variant of the popular distribution, has announced that after the 12.04 release, Canonical will no longer be funding him, effectively putting Kubuntu on the same level as other Ubuntu variants like Xubuntu.

Kubuntu 11.10 was completely done by the community and is a fine distribution. So, nothing new, really.

Exactly. They terminated the position of the one guy on the Canonical team proper that was responsible for helping with KUbuntu. Yes it sucks for him, but it means very little to the distro itself.
