"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 bare.

"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."
