Hi Duncan,<br>
<br>
&gt; According to a recent post on the dev list, the gentoo/kde project had<br>
&gt; intended to try to stabilize kde 4.6.2, thus eliminating the hal<br>
&gt; dependency for stable kde4, clearing the way for its removal from portage.<br>
<br>
... and that&#39;s still the plan. Ever heard of the famous &quot;30days&quot;? :)<br>
<br>
&gt; Meanwhile, 4.6.2 has actually been released.  Of course this is now beyond<br>
&gt; that post, so it&#39;s my evaluation from here.  If 4.6.1 was a bit of a<br>
&gt; regression, as from that post it evidently was, for me it was fine.  NOT<br>
&gt; SO 4.6.2!  It has a couple nasty regressions that affect me personally,<br>
&gt; with others affecting other folks, some of which are posting to the kde<br>
&gt; user lists I follow -- WAY more than they did for the 4.6.1 upgrade.<br>
&gt; Based both on posts to the kde lists and my own experience, 4.6.2 is<br>
&gt; anything BUT a stable candidate!<br>
<br>
There were some initial problems with 4.6.2 but slowly it is shaping up now.<br>
Please file bugs (if there are not already) for your &quot;nasty regressions&quot;...<br>
<br>
The list of known issues [*] that is linked from my blog post also contains<br>
stuff that alone would not prevent stabilization (only regressions compared to<br>
4.4 are even considered as stable blockers).<br>
<br>
However, you are correct with one thing. Upstream is making a big mess, and<br>
I&#39;m already looking forward to curious new bug reports for 4.6.3...<br>
<br>
As for kde-3, I fear it is going to turn into a maintenance and security<br>
nightmare...<br>
<br></blockquote><div><br></div><div>Ping me if you need anything KDE3 related, I&#39;ll try to do my best to get kde-sunset up to par. I&#39;m closely watching this mailing list for that fact.</div><div><br></div><div>Best regards,</div>
