    KDE 4 release delayed to January

    The KDE 4 release has been delayed to January. Phoronix reports:

    KDE 4.0 was planned for release in time for Christmas, but the KDE community has decided to postpone this much-anticipated release until January. There are still some issues to be worked out with KDE 4.0 when it comes to visual glitches and other areas that do not currently meet KDE's quality standards. Next month is also the KDE 4.0 release party at Google (which we will be covering), so hopefully there are no further delays. The KDE 4.0 Release Candidate 1 was released two weeks ago. This delay was mentioned at KDE News.

    Don't know where you read that. Topic check before posting found nothing similar. And I just quickly googled it. The delay before this one that pushed the release to december 20th was announced in August. Now they moved it from December to January something.

    I'm hoping that that was because you want them to fix bugs, not because you want to see one of the oldest opensource DEs fail.

    I think they shot too high. So, let's just hope they iron everything out.

    yes, come to think of it, this is indeed the 2nd time so far that it's been been pushed back.
    i seem to remember that the final release was originally planned for october.

    Better than a GNOME 1.0.

    The hype is probably making it difficult to make KDE4 live up to its expectations.

    I don't use Compiz, not usable enough.
