Plasmatastic!

So a few hours ago I had some time left and updated my whole KDE build, including kdebase. After using an extremely unstable Plasma, from the port-it-to-woc-dept period, for weeks.. I now have a seriously stable desktop again, with loads of unnoticed improvements. For example, I connected my laptop to a screen (from widescreen to a squary screen), restarted X11 and started KDE again. After 5 minutes using it I realized that in 4.0 I would have ended up hacking numbers in the panel containment in plasmarc to get the panel correct again, it all just works now! Thumbs up to KDE, and the Plasma team in particular! I'm really sure now that 4.1 is going to be a very solid release... Ps. Oh, and that Krunner revamp rocks as well!

@xoox: I build it (almost daily) on a Kubuntu Gutsy setup. I use a buildscript I've written myself, which I should share with the world some day. But on techbase is a serious good amount of information on compiling it yourself, there is also kde-svn, but I've never tested that.

Which version of Linux did you build KDE4 on?

Did you use a build-script, or do it all manually?

(Shameless plea for compilation advice)

Cool. Of course, it would be even better if you didn't need to restart KDE or X....
