The KDE 4.x series has come a long way since the KDE 4.0 and 4.1 releases. 4.2 was the first release that could be used without worrying about crashes and randomly rearranged panels. KDE 4.3 added new features and brought back a lot of features (about 2000) that were present in the KDE 3.5 desktop environment while fixing more than 10,000 bugs. Since then, the KDE project has gone from strength to strength, rolling out better releases every 6 months and with each release exorcising the ghost of the 4.0 release.
