That's never a good sign. I am surprised because KDE seem to have great
momentum. I recently read that it was Pan where development had gone

I see bugs on occasions. I just know them well enough to consider them
"predictable". Then again, I am not using the latest version.

I am seeing more and more things being proposed in the KDE newsgroup. I

feels like KNode is staying behind and us (the users) need to whine because
"his/her newsreader is bigger than our newsreader"^(TM).
