    If KDE 4.3 is released I will try it instead of gnome again.

    Kde 4.2.4 is far the best DE I have ever tried. I'm sure kde 4.3 beats it ;-)

    I think it would be nice if you developed a qt4 version of phonix-test-suite.

    Show me some good Qt4 PHP bindings... Though such a Qt GUI would not likely occur without the commercial backing of an interested party.

    Why not just write the test suite in something like Perl, if you need a scripting language.

    It seems a bit silly to be developing a test suite using PHP.

    Hefty changelog, nice improvements, but still it needs to be faster and more efficient. The amount of resources some K apps use is a disaster. At least it logs out faster.

    Does anybody know if there is a chance of getting improved printing support (odd/even page selection and n-up printing) and an obex kioslave (for browsing mobiles) before the final freeze?

    There is no mention of these in the changelog, but they were expected from the release goals, so I really hope that they can make it. I realize that to some having a wallpaper that changes with the weather and a screensaver progressively eating the desktop is by far more exciting, but please give a chance to save the forests also to those who do not own a duplex printer.
