Today, KDE has released a first beta of the upcoming 4.7 release of the Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Frameworks, which is planned for July 27, 2011.

The 4.7 release will bring a number of exciting improvements:
Beautiful, flexible, functional Desktop Software.
The Freedom to use, share, and modify your software.
Full control over your data and privacy.
All This and more isdone by KDE.
My new OpenSuSE 11.2 with KDE 4.3.1 has never look so good!
While I was just force to reboot to load the new kernel (2.6.31) it is always a good idea to save your most important data before updating!
OpenSuSE 11.2 is not final but very close, update at your own risks. If you dont like taking risks, wait till 12th November 2009 for final release.
Remove all existing YaST repositories pointing to OpenSuSE 11.1 by running as root
# zypper mr –-all -d
Then add all new repositories for OpenSuSE 11.2
zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/ "openSUSE 11.2 Updates" zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/oss/ "openSUSE Factory Oss" zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/non-oss/ "openSUSE Factory Non-Oss" zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/debug/ "openSUSE Factory Debug"
Refresh all repositories metadata
# zypper refresh
Get the latest version of zypper
# zypper in zypper
Upgrade your whole operating system (distribution)
# zypper dup
Wait 2 to 3 hours, Zypper will download and update your system
when zypper is finished run
Reboot to load the new kernel, and enjoy your new KDE
Done with the help of http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/10/01/updating-in-place-from-opensuse-11-1-to-11-2/
This is how my previous OpenSuse 11.1 desktop was looking like (KDE 4.2Beta)
I have been following 11.2 for a while, upgrading through milestones and an RC from 11.1 very easily with zypper dup. But now it is time to install the Official 11.2 :-)
Welcome to openSUSE 11.2, the next evolution of openSUSE, coming Thursday, November 12th, 2009! The new version of openSUSE improves your computing experience with over 121 new features, including a fresh new look and feel.

My Favorite Desktop under Linux has reach a huge milestone
KDE 4.3.0 is out, and it is a great release. It is unlikely that any one specific thing will strike the user as the most noticeable improvement; rather, the overall user experience of KDE has improved greatly in KDE 4.3.0. The release's codename, Caizen, is a Japanese philosophy that focuses on continuous improvement throughout all aspects of life. That has been the goal of the KDE team for 4.3.0: polish, polish, polish. The statistics from the bug tracker speak for themselves: 10,000 bugs have been fixed. In addition, close to 63,000 changes were checked in by a little under 700 contributors. That is not to say that the KDE team did not add a large number of new features: 2000 feature requests were implemented in the past 6 months, meaning that any user's pet feature might well be among the improvements KDE 4.3.0 brings.
