KDE 4.4 is out. The new version of the Desktop Environment works fine for me, most serious show stopper bugs are gone now and KDE4 appears to make a lot more sense as a productive environment, compared to the situation one year ago. A more usable KDE will certainly help developers to focus on a resolution of the other crashes and annoyances. For Dolphin for instance there are 66 crash bugs recorded, for Konsole 31, all of this doesn’t look severe anymore.
The KDE project also renewed their website. Now it looks pretty fresh and new. Unfortunately all relevant stuff for persons interested in development is shielded from the web site users. The website proposes to download the software but most users don’t do that. Development-related essentials are kept away from the users. Think of the bug tracker. It is still available but the website is very slow.
