Planet KDE already has more than enough release banners, so I’m not going post another one. I will, however, say one thing: of the complaints that I’ve seen levelled at the 4.0.0 desktop so far, most are already fixed for 4.0.1.
I’ve occasionally been posting bugs.kde.org stats for Plasma on #plasma. So here are the latest for the planet:
Total bugs filed against plasma, excluding duplicates: 195
Currently open bugs for plasma: 62
Of which wishes: 28
Leaving “real bugs”: 34
The “open bugs” totals have been pretty steady over the past few weeks, while the total number of reported bugs has been steadily increasing as more and more people use the desktop.
Just remember this when you complain about problems with the desktop: if you don’t file bugs, they won’t get fixed!
(PS: for crashes, please install the *-dbg or *-debug packages before you file the report and reproduce the crash to get a useful backtrace if you can. If you can’t, don’t worry – a detailed description of the problem without a backtrace is better than us not knowing at all.)
