    Thanks for the link.

    I can't finde any phonon improvements in these lists (4.3/4.4) and that sucks. Phonon still lacks too many "features" like equalizer support...

      Phonon does lack a lot of features. I my self discovered it while writing my qt app with phonon... well for the moment it does it's job quite well... hopefully though it will get some major advance features in the near future.

        You sure that this isn't the task of Xine/Gstreamer? Phonon is just a wrapper I think.

        Aaron Seigo recently posted a list with planned Plasma features for KDE 4.4 in his blog and it was H U G E.

          I saw that the bug was known.

          Wondering if this is fixed.

          No idea whose fault it is? KDE, Qt, GTK+, Inkscape?
          Color in the sliders? I believe that's an option you can enable in SystemSettings...

            Aaron's post was just about Plasma. http://aseigo.blogspot.com/2009/07/p...in-kde-44.html

            Most of the GSOC projects will be in 4.4 as well. http://socghop.appspot.com/org/home/google/gsoc2009/kde

              This release rocks! Congrats kde team.
              Kde is even better than windows 7 interface!

                Mmm KDE4Live with RC1 was probably my favorite distro for quite a while now I've just discovered the joys of Pardus which has to be the best implementation of KDE 4x that I've come across. Unfortunately I would love some 4.3 action instead.

                Any advice about the easiest way to get a nice 4.3 distro easily? i.e, which good distro is likely to implement this first and which current distro would be easiest to upgrade to 4.3.

                Thanks all! Major respect to all the developers, they've been doing such a good job. I must be one of the few that switched from GNOME to KDE *because* of all the 4.xx innovations (4.1 onwards anyway).

                  My Gentoo system is currently upgrading to it. Let's see if it's worth all the fuss

                    Kubuntu may not be the best KDE distro out there (I really hate the default settings), but the Kubuntu team releases packages on the same day there's a KDE update. I just finished upgrading to KDE 4.3 a few hours ago.

                      I regularly compile trunk anf like it very much.
                      I finally got to set up one Plasma activity per virtual desktop : it's really very good and should be the default in my opinion.
                      This way I have appropriate widgets per virtual desktop, allowing to use each one for a specific purpose, with its own apps and widgets.
                      Very very good!

                        I switched from Kubuntu to Mandriva recently. They already have packages for KDE 4.3 for their two last stable versions (2009 Spring and 2009). And in my opinion their integration of KDE is better then in Kubuntu. openSUSE is also usually quick to update to latest KDE. And I've just tried Pardus 2009 a couple of days ago and I'm quite impressed.

                        Oh and BTW, you are not alone in switching from GNOME to KDE because of KDE 4. Two of my school mates did the same and appears that KDE 4 is something that might finally concience my sister to switch from Windows to Linux. She was already tempted when I showed her KDE 4.2 on my laptop. I guess now she will do it when I show her KDE 4.3

                            There's something that just didn't sit right with me about Mandrive. SUSE I quite like but Pardus blew me away. Don't suppose if you guys know if Pardus will be updated with 4.3 or not? And whether it's likely to be soon?

                            As for Kubuntu.. It doesn't even feel like a distro, it feels like it has no identity at all, no character. Do Kubuntu devs add anything to stock KDE?

                                I stand corrected I suppose - I'll try and give it another shot with Karmic but out of the few times I've tried it, it always struck me as rather slow and lacking in character. Having said that, I'm not a developer so this is not to diss the kubuntu devs, probably more of a resource issue.
