    Phoronix: KDE Puts Out Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 1

    The KDE development community this morning has announced the release of KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 1. This previously would have been known just as K Desktop Environment 4.4 Beta 1, but the rebranding took place...

      I hope only to log out quicker than 4.3

        Just enable the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace logout shortcut! Seriously, I think that this is usually a problem with Kdm. I know that Kubuntu 9.04 was very bad about this. I haven't had any problems with 9.10. I think this is a distro implementation problem.

          Some links

          Also no problems with logout here on Mandriva 2010. BTW here are some early previews with (pre-)beta 1:

            But I use Gentoo. My system needs 30 secs to boot and about 40secs for KDE to log out

              This, dear Gnome fans, is a changelog.

                Yeah the logout time is embarrassing, I wonder what would people say if Windows 7 did that along with spitting pages or warnings, errors, segfaults.

                  Well nothing interesting, I'll install KDE when they will release leak free code, improve performance by a least 1.5x, and decrease memory usage by half. And maybe release more useful QT4 programs, but this is very unlikely.

                    I switched to KDE after 9 years of continual use of Gnome. Just for fun. I had free time and wanted to use something different.
                    Overall, KDE is impressive, especially Dolphin's preview abilities (I won't run a comparison between KDE and Gnome, no worthy reason) but this slowness in log-out time is atrocious

                      Weird. I'm on Gentoo too, with KDE 4.3.4. I don't have this problem.

                        I have 4.3.3. Did you have it with that one?

                          Sorry but, really few people nowadays have problems with kde slow performance, memory leakage, or even that logout thing. In fact, most of the time the problem was downstream, and not KDE fault, at all.

                          KDE (SC) 4 is shaping up very well and I`m not afraid at seeing it as a great mean for the Linux thing to take over Windows. Specially if Wine becomes something totally trivial...

                            I like the speed of dolphin when browsing through folders, much snappier than nautilus. But once you enable single click browse mode they are comparable. Other annoying issue with nautilus is that sometimes I have to press shit+delete 3 or 4 times to delete a folder.

                              Nope.

                              Edit:
                              I have disabled this "semantic desktop" thingy though ("-semantic-desktop" in make.conf). Might have something to do with it.
