Probably I've just seen too much bad examples. I saw all the crashes
I had to live with the dbus bugs, wih kmix crashes. I can't even count
all the bugs I had to arrange me with going from 4.1 to 4.6 ;)
For now I have exactly 43 bugs "open".
And now when I updated to kde-4.6 I have to delete my panel and
re-create it every time I don't use my external monitor because it
And when I updated from 4.6.1 to 4.6.2 kmix stopped working correctly.
However when I report such bugs - most of the time nothing happens.
I agree with you here but, I would add MHO: maybe 1 release in every 3
should be just for "polishing" KDE SC 4.x. No new features just bug
squashing, optimizing performance, fixing security issues, profiling,
... The other 2 releases would be the "normal everyday work".
Maybe this would help make a "better" KDE (if that's possible ;)
Absolutly! I already thought about such "quality" releases and I think
its a great idea.
If the goal of a release if to improve stability and fix those bugs a
dev usually has no time for,
it would greatly reduce the amount of bugs that accumulated over time.
Adding new features is not always bad (MHO, again). ForOf course, new features are what keeps software from bit-rot.
However, when something new is added, it should also be checked for
performance concerns, not only if it doesn't crash plasma ;)
Thanks again, Clemens
