Oh? This is rare... I can't remember a single release of KDE being delayed since the release of 4.0. Not that I'm constantly on the look out for delays though, so I might just have missed it.
It doesn't seem so.

YEAAAAAAHHHH FUNKSTAR IS BACK
and in 2013 his wife is still humping KDE developers as i can see
Let me help you. First of all; when people move it translates to change over time, not absolute values. Secondly; Your claims about what Arch is and isnt is flawed. Now Arch doesnt show trending just absolute values. So go use google. Im sorry to tell you about 40% had KDE installed a year ago.

funkSTAR, what is wrong with you? Talk about things you love or how to improve things. What do you earn by trolling? Do you think you have a sacred mission to warn everybody about the end of KDE?
Honestly, get a life dude.
Dear Sir. Thank you for your genuine concern about my wellbeing. Im happy to annonce Im in good health. God bless you.

KDEPIM : kmail got backup functionality, other optimizations. Akregator is on its way to be rewritten using akonadi.
Plasma has even more parts in QML (namely notifications).
More activity enabled applications (gwenview comes to mind). Speaking of gwenview, it got color management enabled (this is coming to kwin).
Okular got tile-based rendering.
A very nice addition is the passive notification system in kate (propagated into kdevelop and other apps).
KTouch (the edu application to learn touch-typing) is a completely new app.
The games library got a big cleanup.
Not sure if it got merged into master, but there is a new kioslave for the MTP protocol.
more info in the official feature plan
KDE is not dead, far from it. I personnaly love it, and am quite unable to easily use anything else than my heavily tweaked setup.
@funkSTAR : chill dude, you got your point across:you hate kde. You are entirely within your rights, just don't make our forum experience miserbable.
