KDE The KDE Community has announced the release of version 4.10 of Plasma Workspaces, Applications and Development Platform. The 4.10 release contains incremental improvements to a large number of applications, and offers several new technologies. Several components of Plasma Workspaces have been ported to the Qt Quick/QML framework, and stability and usability have been improved. There's also an imnproved print manager and Color Management support. KDE Applications gained feature enhancements to Kate, KMail and Konsole. This release also makes it easier to contribute to KDE with a Plasma SDK, the ability to write Plasma widgets and widget collections in QML, changes in the libKDEGames library, and new scripting capabilities in KWin. Time to update my laptop!

A nice release

Have been using the different RC for a month or so, being rock solid and snappy so far.

I really like the default theme changes they made in this release. I always noticed a usability problem with the previous Air theme. The old Air theme had a color for the panels that was too bright for the matching white icons they were providing. If you compare the default screenshot of 4.9 to 4.10, you will notice the improvement.

Guess I'll be sticking with QtCurve. I've never found Oxygen to be an attractive theme. Too much space in the wrong places, too little in others, and lines are *not* evil. Sometimes it's nice to see things separated out a little bit.

+1 for QtCurve

The new style for Qt5 looks even better:
