A Distro with KDE 4.1 final...?

I would like to know if there is a final release of a distro that ships with the final release of KDE 4.1 because I would really like to try it because I did not try KDE 4.0

If there is no such Distro then please point out one in the development stage.( Live CD please)

KDE 4.1

As we’ve already discussed, KDE 4.0 is still maturing and may lack features that experienced KDE users expect. However, KDE 4.1 will be much better in these respects and is expected to be released in late July. Shortly after the 4.1 release announcement, it will be available from the openSUSE Build Service repositories, enabling users to update via 1-click-install — albeit not officially supported. However, if you want to run the latest and greatest from KDE, you’ll be able to do so (and help testing as well!)

The next openSUSE release, openSUSE 11.1, should be out in December of this year and include a thoroughly tested and well-integrated KDE 4.1.x right out of the box.

You could always try the KDE live cd which contains KDE 4.1 and is built on openSUSE

Mandriva 2009 beta is currently available with KDE4.1. Granted its beta but overall my experience with it in the last two weeks has been a good one.

Debian has it in experimental, and I saw a Debian Planet blog entry the other day about some 4.1 packages backported to Lenny - see here for details.

Thank you for all your replies and sorry for the late feedback,

I am already using Mandriva Linux 2008 so I tried the Beta version of Mandriva 2009 and it was very nice, lacking features and programs as a beta but very promissing

Thank you all and good luck.
