    does anyone know what they're doing after 4.9? is it going to jump up to 4.10 or are they moving onto 5? the reason i'm asking is because as far as i'm aware, kde 5 is based around qt5. i'm also wondering if kde5 will end up being a separate desktop environment or if everything will be a smooth transition.
    There won't be a “KDE 5” – never ever because there is no product called “KDE”.
    Plasma Workspaces 4.9 will be based on KDE Frameworks 5.0 and so far no radical change to Workspaces has been announced to justify a 5.0 release there.

      Just upgraded to KDE SC 4.8 today and I am very impressed. The kwin performance with fglrx has greatly improved and I am now able to run everything with the oxygen transparency theme smooth, even though everything is blured.

        This indeed is a great release, I used to troll a lot in the past about KDE. I never seen kwin run so smooth, and I only tried KDE 4.8 on my Intel Atom & Nv ION netbook so far.

          You'd think that the KDE people would learn from Microsoft trying to rebrand MSN every week that you won't ever get people to stop calling KDE "Whatever" "KDE".
