on the recent libplasma changes

,----[ Quote ]
| So if you are concerned about the recent changes made impacting stability, I
| thank you for your concern and empathize with how one could arrive at such a
| conclusion. Thankfully, these changes have been made specifically to answer
| your concerns, as well as mine, about stability and feature completeness both
| in 4.1 and beyond.

First look: KDE 4.1 alpha 1 very promising

,----[ Quote ]
| The open-source KDE desktop environment is built on top of Trolltech's Qt
| development toolkit. One of the most significant changes in KDE 4.1 is the
| adoption of Qt 4.4, a new version of the toolkit which includes important
| features such as a built-in WebKit-based HTML rendering widget and support
| for placing widgets on canvases. These features will bring some new
| capabilities to KDE's Plasma desktop shell. * *

KDE 4 rev 802150: Work in progress

| KWin with Wobbly Windows
|
| Kwin features a new visual effect known to most of you from Compiz: the
| Wobbly Windows. Only a few days ago the settings panel for this effect had
| tons of detailed options. Most of these options have been disabled now, the
| only thing that can be configured is the window deformation level while in *
| motion. This seems more appropriate for a common user since the number of
| configurable settings was overwhelming before. One minor flaw that I noticed
| in KWin Wobble Windows is that the window shadow is not properly deformed (it
| does not adjust to the current shape of the window). * * *
