Bugs will be fixed.Development of all other components (PIM, games...) will continue the same.There WILL be further KDE SC 4 series releases. the blog mentioned up to 4.13, but it might be above that.
Previously, I was getting problem starting X. Now, after starting X, I've found another issue. I've added .bash_profile and .xinitrc file to ~. Moreover, console used to appear before but now login screen appears. There are login option at bottom left where there is option like default,custom,KDE plasma Workspace,KDE plasma Workspace(failsafe session),TWM and Failsafe.
For years, KDE has delivered excellence in its Plasma desktop environment. The Plasma project is so big in itself, it has three parts- Plasma Desktop, Plasma Netbook and the new Plasma Active. Plasma Active turned some heads in October this year, when its first version appeared for tablets.Plasma Active 2 claims that it adapts to the way you use your device.
Yesterday's Kubuntu 10.10 release features new KDE software for your phone. Working with KDE's Plasma Mobile team, Kubuntu have created Kubuntu Mobile, suitable for smart phones and available for i386 and ARM platforms. This is a technology preview of the upcoming Plasma Mobile workspace and is not ready for day to day use.
The KDE workspace is a unique experience not found with any other desktop environment or operating system. It is called Plasma and is fully integrated with a widget system and is easily themeable. When you first install KDE, it will already look beautiful, but half of the fun of a free and open source workspace is tweaking.
The package kde-workspace 4.11.0 revision 2 along with it's related debug and log packages should get a revision bump to 3 so that pacman notices and installs the update, otherwise it will be ignored.I had to install kde-workspace-4.11.0-2 manually by removing the already cached version so it would force pacman to download the new package.Thanks.
