"One of the big upgrades that was scheduled for KDE SC 4.5 was
porting the PIM (ie. kmail, korganizer, kaddressbook) applications
to the Akonadi framework. Unfortunately, that process won't be
completed in time for 4.5.0, and will be delayed until 4.5.1. This
is a little disappointing given that Akonadi has been full of
promise for quite some time, with no real user visible outcomes. It
would have been nice to see what Akonadi will bring to the party.
However, it's better to wait until all the kinks are ironed out.
But unfortunately, it leaves the KDE 4.5 feature cupboard a little
"The notification area and system tray have been reworked to
work with a new D-BUS protocol created by KDE and adopted by
Canonical in Ubuntu 10.04. This means that notifications should be
consistent regardless of which toolkit an application that uses the
notification area was written in."
