Does anyone know when KDE 4.4 will be available from the repo?

It is currently unstable, even in gentoo it is masked as unstable, 4.3 is the one that installs when you emerge the meta.

Basically, put up with 4.3 untill it becomes stable ( which may be never ) or build it from source, which will take hours ( took me 21 hours to compile kde 4.3 ) and risk having serious problems.

So this announcement http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.4/ is still unstable?

I think they will come today, at the moment they are still building:

https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/staging (https://launchpad.net/%7Ekubuntu-ppa/+archive/staging)

When they are finished they will be published in Kubuntu Backports (incl. Qt 4.6.1 :D):

https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports (https://launchpad.net/%7Ekubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports)

In the next release for the stable version

The beta PPA may have it: ppa:kubuntu-ppa/beta

note that this may have unstable software
