Here are some screenies i took of kde 3.4. im not sure if some of these features where included in previous releases, but its the first time I see them.
First, id like to say that most of the things on my desktop are not part of the default KDE 3.4. The icons are nuvola, the taskbaris taskbar v2 and hte windeco is crystal-gl. the wallpaper is mine as well. but other than that, it is all kde 3.4.
Picture 1- Shows the new icon zooming. This has a cool looking animation as well. However, it does not have "OSX" icon zooming. but i think i like this better anyway.
Picure 2- This shows the new hide button, which uses icons from your icon set instead of the old ugly arrow.
Picture 3- This is the new settings:/ kioslave. this creates a kcontrol in konqueror. It is somewhat similiar to the control panel in windows.
Picture 4- This is the new kinfocenter. There is a new section for opengl, but currently it just displays the welcome screen if you click on it. This will hopefully be a future we will see in the future.
Picture 5- This is the new keyboard status applet. im not really sure what it does, but it is supposed to help out people with disabilities.
Picture 6- I do not know if this is new or not, but it is a picture of the Devices applet.
Picture 7- This is the MediaControl applet.
Picture 8- I was just testing out my KDE: ReLuna theme in kde 3.4. It works great.
Picture 9- This is just a screenshot of my desktop.
Pictures 10 and 11- These show the new support for greyscale icons.
I think it is also worth noting that there is no support for svg wallpapers at the moment. another feature i was looking forward to was more advanced support for logitech mice. i still have not found this either. However, i have seen a large performance improvement with kde 3.4 and it is quite stable.
