KDE The KDE Software Compilation 4.11 has been released.

Gearing up for long term maintenance, Plasma Workspaces delivers further improvements to basic functionality with a smoother taskbar, smarter battery widget and improved sound mixer. The introduction of KScreen brings intelligent multi-monitor handling to the Workspaces, and large scale performance improvements combined with small usability tweaks make for an overall nicer experience.

This release marks massive improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate improves the productivity of Python and Javascript developers with new plugins, Dolphin became faster and the educational applications bring various new features.

This release of KDE Platform 4.11 continues to focus on stability. New features are being implemented for our future KDE Frameworks 5.0 release, but for the stable release we managed to squeeze in optimizations for our Nepomuk framework.

That name.

In general, I hate the KDE plasma themes. I just want something that looks simple and flat without any shadows or gradients.

You perfectly worded my primary problem with KDE. ;)

Every so often I'll install the latest version and try it out. Each time I'm disappointed at how much work and tweaking is needed to stop KDE from screaming HEY I JUST WANT TO REMIND YOU THAT YOU'RE USING KDE!

I want use the benefits of the amazing KDE software, but then have the user interface just get out of my way.
