Since my last blog, a few more bugs have been fixed in the KDE PIM 4.6 branch, so we’ve put out another RC release. This will likely become the final 4.6 version that gets tagged in a few days and released next week.
I’ve been trying to make clear that this is a usable, if not entirely bug free (or regression free) release. There is no need to fear it, but do try it. Returning to KDE PIM 4.4 may mean you lose trivial information like emails you marked read or important while using 4.6, but certainly not world-ending information loss that can never be recovered.
Still we do consider this a release worth switching to for many people. KDE PIM 4.6 will not fix all problems of all users of 4.4, but it puts us on track to get there.
