... and that's still the plan. Ever heard of the famous "30days"? :)

There were some initial problems with 4.6.2 but slowly it is shaping up now. 
Please file bugs (if there are not already) for your "nasty regressions"...

The list of known issues [*] that is linked from my blog post also contains 
stuff that alone would not prevent stabilization (only regressions compared to 
4.4 are even considered as stable blockers).

However, you are correct with one thing. Upstream is making a big mess, and 
I'm already looking forward to curious new bug reports for 4.6.3...

As for kde-3, I fear it is going to turn into a maintenance and security 
nightmare...

Cheers, 
Andreas
