Default KDE 4 performance improvements on the way?

KDE 4.3.4 was released today, one of the more notable changes:

"A bugfix in Plasma's pixmap cache makes the workspace more responsive"

Also, QT 4.6 has been released, and I believe KDE 4.4 is expected to use it:

"Key performance improvements come in the form of a highly optimized, re-written Qt GraphicsView rendering algorithm, a new OpenGL paint engine, WebKit, 2D vector graphic support using OpenVG, and new DirectFB support."

KDE 4 seems to be performing quite well with the 195.22 drivers already, so it should be interesting to see how things improve in the near future.

Nice. Upgraded to KDE 4.3.4 last night. I noticed KDE had a tendency to hitch for a fraction of a second when maximizing some windows, but that seems to be gone now.

If you run Kubuntu or Ubuntu w/ KDE 4 you can find instructions for upgrading on the kubuntu.org homepage.

Edit: I've read that a KDE 4.4 beta will likely be released any day now.

KDE 4.4 beta 1 is out, although I am not sure how the performance compares.
