"My last review of KDE 4.X was a bitter disappointment, as KDE 4.4 refused to work. Period. Follow the jump to see if this version of KDE works out any better.

However, the most noticeable change is the superior integration of icons into the system tray — whereas before, icons used to look blocky and out-of-place, now they are all-white and more rounded, integrating better with the panel theme. Along with this comes better integration of GTK+ applications into the system tray, as well as better-looking (and less intrusive) notifications."
