= Summary =

o KDE 4 LiveCD: 
- According to the thread on fedora-test-list the current live image has a lot 
of problems. Some of them are related to kde 4 itself (and hopefully be fixed 
in the final), some are related to current xserver in rawhide (vesa) and 
should be filed as bugs 
- KDE-4.0.0 would propably be shipped without composite support enabled by 
default (which "fixes" the problem with intel graphics) 
- KDE-4.0.0 is scheduled to be tagged tommorrow and to be released on 
2008-01-11. After the inclusion into rawhide we should get new live images 

o kde-settings: 
- Upstream has decided to not show desktop icons by default 
- Besides default kickoff menu upstream will ship a "simple menu" as an 
- Both things aren't part of current kde-3.97.0 and we should reconsider them 
after the final release and we see how they perform 

o development progress: the road to kde4: 
- new review requests for packages from extragear/playground: 
 - #427185: Okteta (a replacement for khexedit which isn't ported to KDE4) [2]
- other packages which aren't worked on: Wishlist [3]
 - konq-plugins (from extragear/base, used to be in kdeaddons) 
 - kiconedit (from extragear/graphics, used to be in kdegraphics) 
 - kcoloredit (from extragear/graphics, used to be in kdegraphics) 
 - kaudiocreator (from extragear/multimedia, used to be in kdemultimedia) 
 - kmid (from extragear/multimedia, used to be in kdemultimedia) 
 - ksig (from extragear/pim, used to be in kdeaddons) 

o Other things: 
- xsettings-kde: This packages provides a XSettings daemon to allow XSettings 
aware applications (all GTK+ 2 and GNOME 2 applications) 
to be informed instantly of changes in KDE configuration. It currently is 
packaged in kde-redhat-testing repository until it is reviewed and included 
in fedora [4]
- Review Request: kde4-decoration-native-quarticurve-kwin - Unofficial port of 
the Bluecurve KWin decoration to KDE 4 [5]
