It’s just great! Update from 4.1.4 went smoothly, thanks to Gentoo’s KDE maintainers, great work!
(the left and bottom panels are usually set to ‘auto-hide’, and the right one (which currently only contains the System Tray plasmoid) can be covered by windows, so I have the full screen available for applications)
KDE 4.2.0 brought the following features that I missed a lot since KDE 3.5:
- The Task Manager plasmoid (the taskbar that shows a button
for each running program) can finally have multiple rows, buttons can be grouped
- The Digital Clock plasmoid can show other timezones on hovering with the mouse
- Global keyboard shortcuts work
- Some dialogue windows have been resized to fit on smaller displays
… and I’m still exploring 🙂
Many thanks to all KDE developers for this great piece of Free Software!
