    Default KDE's new 3 month release cycle

    It looks like KDE is going to follow Mesa and move to a 3 month release cycle:

    Release 4.12 final: November 15, 2013
    Release 4.13 final: February 15, 2014
    Which puts 4.14 around May 15th.

    Damn that seems to be a bit of a ways away, especially considering that I'm getting some window decoration glitches ever since the 4.11 update (though, maybe the next catalyst beta driver will fix that).

    I hope they add more planed features, as the current feature is a bit short.

    Distro? I know one of the distros was missing a package that affected window decorations. I think it was Kubuntu but im not positive on that..

    Good! The only drawback is that they are removing features like the background mode of Konsole if we say nothing:

    of course there are more planned features.... just not for kdelibs or Plasma Workspaces 1.

    EDIT: or did you mean the list on KDE's feature plan page? if so you should know by now that that's really not a strict list of all features going into the next release

    Bugfix releases still happen monthly.

    Arch Linux 64 bit

    Ok, good to be reassured of that anyway. I would be surprised if that didn't happen, as it seems KDE devs seem to pummel hundreds of bugs every few weeks. Looking at some of the bug lists though, I do feel a little bad for the KDE devs as it seems at the very least, 1/4 of the bugs are either distro specific (where some packages might not be installed) or user caused.
