    This.

    He clearly said:
    "I was also curious to see whether KWin compositing window manager improvements for KDE 4.9 had any benefit to running OpenGL full-screen games."

    which I understand as "I'm aware of the fact that responsiveness does not mean faster games, but give it a try".

    And got the result:
    "Yes, indeed, KDE 4.9 feels much nicer! [...] there wasn't any major change in performance"

    It's late and I'm tired and probably not reading too carefully but did I just read "KDE becoming more responsive and faster"? But then gaming benchmarks? I mean, how does a gaming benchmark symbolize the responsiveness of a DE?
    And the difference between 178 and 180 fps is really a significiant measure not just a measurement artifact, a summation of noise against signal?
    I mean, fine if games get 2 more fps in the next version of KDE SC but is there any quantitative way to measure desktop experience?

    Report what? I'm just working in a completely different window, when I get a popup that Kopete has crashed. If I hit the report bug button, it says it needs to install additional packages on my machine.

    KDE is already pretty fast for me. Can't wait til it hits stable!

    I'm not seeing any difference, other then more frequent crashes. Kopete seems to lead the pack. I know Telepathy is supposed to be the new kid on the block, but that doesn't even show me my yahoo contacts; which is a step up because it used to be unable to log in.
    It's not all bad, it's just a crash or two in a whole day of using KDE. Hopefully the final version will fix these.

    They are already in the process of doing this. The initiative is called "frameworks 5" and has been underway for a while now. It will still be a while before it is done, there are a lot of inter-dependencies between bits of kdelibs and kde-runtime that need to be untangled and cleaned out if the individual libs are actually going to be useful.

    Great, KDE has matured a lot, that makes me really happy.

    Now if they could only split kdelibs into smaller and individual libs, port things to Qt5 and Wayland, and keep doing incremental changes and bugfixes, that would be amazing.

    Thanks KDE people!
    Would not be a bad idea to split the kdelibs package into smaller packages as its gotten quite big
