I got the chance to play a little more with KDE4 since the first release candidate was announced, so I made a brief video tour of a few things that particularly interest me. You can easily get going with the openSUSE KDE Packages, KDE 4 Live CD, or the new KDE4Daily QEMU image.
KWIN Composite (the new KDE desktop effects) was the only thing that I didn’t get to demonstrate as xvidcamp/recordmydesktop completely fail if it is enabled. Nevertheless, that is certainly something to try out for yourself.
