I hope this new release solves the problems people were having with version 0.3.1. I apologize for delayed responses, but I have been in the process of getting version 0.4.0 ready for release. A lot of work has gone into this release, and it is by far the most polished to date.

Even though this version is major upgrade, I do not consider it feature complete. The reason for the release is that I couldn't sit on the code any longer. I read an open source motto of 'release early, release often' or something like that. But the following issues will be addressed soon:

1. Installation sucks. I need to create some distro-specific packages to ease the process.
2. Work needs to be done on the Taskbar. A lot of code was borrowed from Cleanbar. I'm still learning how to code w/ Superkaramba more efficiently. But at the moment, there is a finite amount of separate applications that you can see via the taskbar. I say separate applications because it does group windows from the same applications together in a menu. Also, I need to add basic task functions to a popup menu so that you can easily close, move, or max/minimize windows from the taskbar and not see the ugly SK menu.
3. I need to incorporate Drag and Drop support into the Sidebar. Mainly this is for the Trash plugin, which currently just opens trash:/ in konqueror.
4. Currently, only konqueror is used for browsing the web. I need to make it so that the user can also choose Firefox or Opera.
5. I need to add a config dialog for the Sidebar, and also add a dialog to easily install Kuartet themes, applets, and plugins graphically.

So as you can see, there is much work to be done on the 0.4.x series. However, they will come gradually and the result should be wonderful :-)

I hope to have details on making themes available so that real artists (certainly not me) can contribute to the project.

If you haven't already done so, download the new version!!!
