A sanctioned community upgrade is in development. It is wise to wait for that.

viewtopic.php?f=57&t=32456

Having said that KDE 4.7 is in the Debian experimental repos. I think some of our users have upgraded to it. I am sure they will respond with issues, or lack thereof.

There will be at the appropriate time. In development means it is not ready to release.

I got 64-bit up and running, and 32-bit finished except for 4 mistakes I have to go back and fix--there's still a lot of smaller packages I have to finish on 64-bit, too. However, I do have a job & a life, such as it is :)

One thing is that openGL desktop effects are blacklisted for certain cards (such as Intel GM 45 and my intel clarksdale) when paired with our older xorg drivers. Xrender does work great, though. I will try and upgrade xorg from backports.org after the builds to see if that fixes the issue.

Update: Have all packages finished, will upload them to Ubuntu One tomorrow night, Pacific Time. They include Digikam 2.5.0. Haven't found any older broken programs yet, but we'll see. K3b still works.

Updating the Intel driver from squeeze-backports enabled openGL effects and they really seem smoother--no new ones, though.

Kind of pooped out, but will see about getting the xorg upgrades into the CR eventually, though the command line instructions are simple and worked a treat for the backports repo. Haven't heard from Tim yet on where he wants to put these newer KDE packages--another Experimental repo or what
