    Default KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 2 Released

    Phoronix: KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 2 Released

    In just a bit over a month should be the release of KDE 4.4, or more properly known now as KDE Software Compilation 4.4. A month and a half ago was the first beta release, but now KDE Software Compilation 4.4 Beta 2 is ready and has been released to the public this morning. The second beta to this desktop environment brings improvements to the Nepomuk semantic search, Plasma desktop, new desktop applications, and much more...

    Thumbs up Awesome

    Damn, just as my laptop I use for testing various stuff died. I guess i'll just install this onto my production laptop. Even beta 1 worked very well so this one should be more than enough stable for me to use and help with the last of bug reports to help polish it up.

    It should be stable enough for you. I have been using Beta 1 since it was released, and haven't had any major problems. I expect beta 2 to be equally impressive.

    Well, Beta 1 had some problems with desktop effects and notifications but those should be fixed now.

    KDE SC 4.4 is proper serious business, and I can't imagine what I say to KDE SC 4.5 when I see it's new OpenGL2/3-KWin stuff

    Indeed, KDE has come a long way from the days of blob users waiting months for a patch that allowed their high-end 3D cards to run at a usable speed under 4.0.

    Now it's the FOSS users' turn to wait, but instead of essential 2D functionality, they're only missing out on some frivolous eye-candy.

    Just a little perspective.
