If it will ever be finished. Mint lost its KDE sponsor last month. Ouch

    Yeah, it's been dying and dying and dying and dying for decades now, yet it's still here, as healthy as ever.

    You make a terrible clairvoyant.

    Indeed. For example, more than 10,000 Taiwanese school PCs switched from GNOME to KDE as the default desktop recently.

    I don't have anything against him creating flamebait threads like his "Gnome kills KDE" rubbish. After all, if people wants to loose their time arguing with him, that's their life.
    But it is extremely irritating to have it jump on any KDE thread and polute them with his gibberish.
    Of course I can ignore him but I still get all the answers to him, usually quoting his nonsense.
    Michael would have to track him, and his other impersonation, and the other one, etc. It's difficult when a false one like "Honton"-"Funkstar"-whatever_today pretends he is another one, to try to fool internet readers:

    It's not difficult to just ban an IP address. Sure, he could work around that by posting from public locations, or other ways, but that's annoying and after a few bans it's likely he'd just give up and go to trolling a more easily accessible site.

    Why is it that every thread ends up becoming a troll-fest? Hopefully that the irritants are being banned more promptly so that they can learn how to behave themselves and not make a$$es of themselves.

    Back on topic, I have thought that there would be no new features except bug/security fixes for the KDE 4.x series? If this article is to be believed maybe there's one last batch of goodies that the good KDE devs are putting in to put the icing on the (k)ake.

    There will be no new features for kdelibs since 4.9 or so and kde-workspace (i.e. kwin and plasma) since 4.11. There will still be updates for applications and other libraries, possibly into 4.13 or beyond. The idea was to make a smoother transition compared to 4.0, with the old libraries supported with bugfixes for a longer time to make porting applications more seemless to users.
