And in the changelog today

Great thanks are also due to the KDE team, not only for their tremendous
accomplishments over the years, but for the gracious reception they gave to
the members of the Slackware team who traveled to the release event. What
a wonderful group of people! We had a great time there, learned a lot, and
will be applying that knowledge and our new contacts within KDE to provide
the best possible KDE experience for Slackware users. The next Slackware
release will contain KDE 3.5.9, but we're targeting KDE 4.1.x for the one
after that. The application end of things doesn't quite fully cover KDE3's
functionality yet, but by then it will. As I'm sure most of you know, Robby
has put up test packages of the initial KDE 4.0 release which I've tested and
found to be consistent with what to expect from a developer's preview.
The look of the new desktop is stunning, and the use of SVG and hardware
acceleration gives (IMHO) even something like MacOS a run for its money in
terms of appearance and user-friendliness. We look forward with great
anticipation to merging KDE4 when it is mature enough (and it's getting there
fast), and then watching it just get better and better.
Once again, _huge_ thanks to our KDE friends! Stop by here any time. :-)
Good job KDE guys. Gonna check out Robby's package soon.

Still haven't got the time to test out KDE4. Great news that Slack waits until 4.1 although it forces me to wait even longer

well I just had a look and I think 4.0 would be premature. There aren't a lot of customisation options for the kicker. I normally have it hidden and run ksmoothdock but it doesn't seem possible at the moment. I'm reverting back to 3.5 and maybe have a look at 4.1 when it arrives.

I did install -current into a partition & load in Robby's packages. KDE4 looked good & has potential, but there were several things I couldn't figure out how to do (kicker customization was a barrier for me as well) & I'm not a good software tester, so I took it out. I am looking forward to newer versions.
