"KDE 4.2 continues to be available in the KDE:42 repository so if you haven't switched yet, we expect you want to help make 4.3 excellent!

"The week began with a lively chat session discussing the Plasma desktop. Andrew Stromme and Marco Martin from the Plasma dev team paid #opensuse-kde a visit and gave the community a look at what is coming in KDE 4.3. The improved system tray and notifications system got everyone excited, and the channel was surprised to learn about the expanding folders in the Folder View widget that will make powerful desktop file management possible. Marco introduced the ability to link Plasma Activities to virtual desktops, which the openSUSE community thought was a great idea to make Activities accessible and discoverable to the majority of users. Questions were also asked about Plasmate, the planned Plasma widget creator tool, and ways to distribute scripted plasmoids to make user-created Plasma content as ubiquitous as browser extensions."
