More than just that: http://kde.org/announcements/4.8/

I used to do this, too. But no more. KMail now does what I need (good-enough
HTML support) and Akonadi/Strigi/Nepomuk generally behave themselves
sufficiently well that I don't notice them now.

I don't use Kmail and never have; and I automatically turn off
Akonadi/strigi/whateveryouwanttocallit.

Thanks for the URL.

Read it. Nothing there which I don't already have in 4.7.4 (except for
the kmail thingie, which as I said I don't use, and akonadi, which I
always switch off) but for someone who may not have used anything later
than 4.6 v4.8 would certainly be a great improvement.


Now I am starting to think whether KDE has now finally reached its end
of development.......v.8 is only a bug fix for 4.7.4 really; and what
will 4.9 be?
