"KDE 4.2 Beta 2
This pre-release includes the second beta of KDE 4.2, a substantial
upgrade in stability and functionality over KDE 4.1. (4.2 Beta 2 is
also known as 4.1.85: this is the version you will see in package
names). This release will add many new features to KDE 4, including
some that were notably present in KDE 3 but lacking in KDE 4.0 and
4.1, along with some brand new features. It should also provide a
more stable desktop experience than KDE 4.1. A list of features
planned for KDE 4.2, along with their current status, can be found
here. There is a shorter prose write up of several of the new
features, based on Beta 1 rather than Beta 2, here.
Also included is GNOME 2.25.2, the second pre-release of GNOME
2.26. Planned changes for GNOME 2.26 can be found here. A notable
change already visible in this pre-release is the new,
PulseAudio-integrated volume control applet."
