KDE 4.2 Lures Me Back to Kubuntu 8.10 . . .

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, I sounded pretty certain in my last post that I was done with KDE 4.1 
| and Kubuntu 8.10. I was told by a commenter to that post that KDE 4.2 looked 
| pretty promising. I spent this past weekend working with VirtualBox (which 
| itself has matured into a great program - more later) and I got curious about 
| what the Jaunty Jackalope Kubuntu had to offer.

My Impressions of KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Dual screen support in terms of my desktop setup seems to be about the same 
| as it had been, but I think that is because I am using the proprietary ATI 
| driver and not the open source one. It works well enough that I don’t have 
| any issues. I really like the feature where if you have a maximized window on 
| one screen you can just drag it over the other screen and it stays maximized. 
| Maybe other versions of KDE had this… but either way it is real handy.     
| 
| I can hardly say enough good things about KDE 4.2 and I am really looking 
| forward to the 4.3 release and some additional bug fixes.

Loving KDE 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that KDE 4.2 beta1 packages are finally done we can start using KDE 4.2!
| I think the changes are absolutely great. Nothing too radical, but the KDE
| team packed in a lot of features everywhere and it really adds up!

KDE 4.2: A few points

,----[ Quote ]
| After reading this announcement, I decided to upgrade to 4.2 beta 1. Though I
| had been using nightly, but somebody advised me to go for the beta.
| Naturally, beta has all goodies of nightly (neon), but polished.

KDE 4.2 beta 1 on Gentoo

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.2 is set for release on January 27th.  Eager to see what is new and
| improved, I installed beta 1 on my Gentoo box.  KDE 4.1.80 was tagged then
| released late last month after the feature freeze deadline. This is a
| snapshot of the current development tree that will eventually be released as
| KDE 4.2.

Ubuntu: Try KDE 4.2 Now!

,----[ Quote ]
| Dolphin, the file manager for KDE 4, has also seen a few little improvements
| too; most noticeably among them being the slider to smoothly increase or
| decrease the size of the icons in folders.
|
| While this all sounds fantastic, keep in mind that this new version is still
| very much a work-in-progress, and may be prone to random breakage; the Plasma
| workspace has still been crashing regularly for me, desktop effects are still
| a little buggy and sluggish, and a few other niggles which prevent me
| personally from choosing the new KDE series over the proven stability of the
| Gnome desktop. However, it’s great for a casual tinker and for those who like
| to live on the bleeding edge. Have fun!

KDE 4.2: Codenamed Caterpillar, Promising a Butterfly

,----[ Quote ]
| If the first beta of KDE 4.2 is any indication, then the final release of the
| popular GNU/Linux desktop should be the release in which KDE 4 comes into its
| own.
|
| Featuring numerous small enhancements to system settings and standard
| applications, as well as improved customization and features on the desktop
| and panel, 4.2 is a significant upgrade by any standards. Codenamed
| Caterpillar, the release offers hopeful hints of the butterfly that is
| scheduled to emerge in January.

| starting to feel very smooth and polished.

plasma systray, 4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| The white arrow on the edge is the expander: click on it and hidden icons
| show up. If you have no hidden system tray icons then the expander isn't
| shown.

KDE 4.2 is flat out going to rock

,----[ Quote ]
| That’s my prediction. Of course, the truth of the matter is that KDE 4.2
| (trunk) flat out rocks today. Seriously. I have never been more excited about
| the Linux desktop than I am right now. And this, 2+ months out from our
| actual KDE 4.2 release. I’ve been running OpenSUSE 11 for a couple of months
| now, and thanks to the awesome nightly/weekly KDE 4.2/trunk packages, I’m
| thoroughly enjoying pretty-darned-bleeding-edge 4.2/trunk packages, but with
| half the carbs, and I am loving what I’m seeing!

Post 4.2 features - part 1 [Lancelot]

,----[ Quote ]
| New system buttons
|
| One of the first requested features, even before the Lancelot brainstorm
| thread on KDE forums was to change the system buttons from Lock Session, Log
| Out and Switch User to something else because some users don’t use some of
| the buttons. Radically changing the Lancelot behaviour this late in its age
| of existence is something that can not be considered. But the users should
| have some freedom.
