Hello! Since I've been working on [Projects/Plasma/FAQ|the Plasma FAQ]], which covers more or less part of what it's being written here, I think that the content of this page should be somehow merged (or made complementary) to the FAQ, so that we avoid duplication of effort. Opinions?

: I'm not sure what you mean by 'too political'. What content do you expect from a page like this?

: From my understanding of the communications that I've seen, these features won't be added before 4.2 to kde trunk. However distros are likely to make some changes before deploying to users, as the OpenSuse release shows.

: It would be good to have more information on what is missing feature wise in 4.1 and presumably in 4.2. I can only ever find vague statements about KDE4 vs KDE 3.5.9. A list of missing features would be very important in helping people decide. Also a list of features that will disappear.

It appears to me that some of what was said is too political.

The simple truth is that the Plasma project is late, very late. I presume that users know that this happens with software projects and would understand this explanation much easier than political rhetoric that tries to put the best face on a bad situation.

>KDE 4.2 is currently scheduled for release in February 2009.

My first thought is whether any of these missing features are going to be added before then.
