    Updated last night, and i would say i love it. Almost every issue solved from my side, lock screen, dolphin, networkmanager etc.

    I have plasmoid-networkmanager instead of knetworkmanager, it's nice and very informative than knetworkmanager.

    Updated tonight and besides for the occasional Dolphin crash (when multiple instances are open) it seems pretty solid.

    @SauronXXX: Thanks for the Info! So, I reinstalled KDE 4.4.4 (I would like to have Kontakt with german menus).
    I still have one "problem" with KDE 4.4.4 and KDE 4.5.0. When opening dolphin a second window will be openend which shows no menues but a part of the desktop backround. This brocken window can be closed and everything is fine. When closing the working dolphin window, the broken dolphin window will be closed automatically. Did anybody else has observed this behaviour of dolphin?

    It will get updated in october...
    they will probably get it first in the stable repos, so then you can switch back to those, before they get new packages in factory repos...
    I'm also looking for some nice solution, but it seems that's the one....

    I had this problem a while ago, and was fortunately able to fix it (provided it is the same issue). For a description and a workaround:
    [solved]Dolphin window frame issue • KDE Community Forums
    Actual solution: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=204756
    Hope it helps. :-)

    @alvanx: Thanks ! This was the solution and also the reason was the same: before this "problem" occurred, I also removed the strigi search box from dolphin.

    Best wishes

    I guess Kontact 4.5 will be distributed with KDE 4.6? ;-)

    Seems fine so far, a few unexpected crashes aside, but one thing is really bugging me. In 4.4 hovering over a folder in folder view would let you see the contents of that folder, allowing you to easily, and quickly, see and move content several folders deep without having to open dolphin. Now, to get access to a folder you have to click the "up" arrow. Is there any way to change back to the old behaviour? In checked the folder view settings but i couldn't see a setting for it there.

    Realy love the new activities manager BtW, a massive improvement, though i don't really get the icons they're using for them.
