KDE 4.3.0 Desktop Released
Phoronix: KDE 4.3.0 Desktop Released
It's arriving a week later than scheduled, but KDE 4.3 is now available. KDE 4.3 contains many improvements for Plasma, enhanced KWin effects, Dolphin effects, many application improvements, and much more. An extensive overview of the changes for KDE 4.3 can be found at KDE.org within their release announcement...
It's amazing! Air rocks and ability to customize each desktop independently is very neat.
It's pretty much perfect now, but still can't wait for 4.4 after seeing it's feature list (which is already massive)
Kde 4.3 just rocks! It still of course has some minor issues, but it's reaching a stable and feature-rich status.
Personally I do not like the new minimize/maximize/close buttons. Those are way to sharp and IMHO not go nicely with the theme. Old ones from 4.2 were/are softer and were perfect. New tabs in oxygen also look strange, maybe I'm just used to the old look on this one. Still though the mentioned buttons look just wrong and I just cannot get over it, actually it may be the reason for me to change from oxygen style to something different.
Other then that all improvements seem nice.
I highly suggest to use Air style.

Isn't Air just a plasma theme though ? My concerns are about normal applications not plasmoids.

4.3 really shaped up to a solid release. Kudos all around!
Can't wait for this...thank goodness. If KDE4 continues to improve then I can dump KDE 3.5 once and for all
Does it play nice with GTK+ apps?
I ran a fairly recent build if KDE a month or two ago and when I ran Inkscape I couldn't see the colors in any of the sliders.
I saw that the bug was known.
Wondering if this is fixed.
No idea whose fault it is? KDE, Qt, GTK+, Inkscape?
