KDE 4.1 rocks the desktop

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 130.125.73.65] on July 30, 2008 02:59 PM
I'm using KDE since version 0.x and the version changes from 1>2 and 2>3 were always a bit bumpy. But 4.x is different. I tried 4.0 for about 30 minutes, 4.1 for about 2 hours before returning to 3.5.x.
I just missed some basic (at least for me) features, essential for me.

I'm a software developer and know know much time and work it took to get so far! What I don't understand is the release strategy of KDE 4. In my opinion 4.0 and 4.1 are both pre-alpha releases (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle), celebrated as product releases.
Or did I miss something and 4.x is a complete development release, like linux kernels with odd major release numbers in the old days?
What will be the first "real" product release of KDE 4? 4.5 or 5.0?
