No, not a political slogan
The headings in the menu are changed. Multimedia is now Sound & Video, Development is Programming, Accessories, System Tools.
We now have a cashew or whatever it's called taking up space on the limited and valuable real estate that makes up the panel.
Cookies and KWallet work again with Konqueror. Konqueror is getting better and better. A few crashes last week seem fixed.
Now to update to Qt 4.4.
what about gui development stuff or translation stuff (babel) that sits in development but is not actually programming
small gripe, not really necessary to change back if you don't think that it is a big deal
Extra Cashew - no idea why one isn't enough, I suspect it fills a different purpose and needs a different icon - if not then why, oh why, oh why.
Konqueror will be the bees knees with webkit, the wonderful Kubuntu folk I understand are helping out there so I won't need Opera/Firefox anymore as Konq is much better but let down by KHTML (I do appreciate KHTML and what it has achieved but it is time now to let it go)
Programming contains all the translation and gui stuff.
Accessories replace Utilities. Other has, umm, other stuff such as acroread.
System Tools has what used to be under System.
I'm sticking with khtml. I consider the khtml 4 as equivalents to RMS' single handed coding marathons when everyone wanted to close everything at the time. If we don't get why the Webkit saga is bad for free software, we deserve the broken and unworkable mess that the free desktop will become when control and direction of the desktop is taken by commercial interests. No one in their right mind would write khtml if money was an issue. It wasn't at the time, and it shows.
