The latest maintenance version includes major fixes for  Dolphin, Konqueror, KWin Ocular, KGpg and many more applications.

KDE has improved a lot from the initial buggy versions. The UI has improved considerably and its looks are comparable to that of Windows 7, maybe better.

The effects in KDE 4.3.3 render smoother than before and makes KDE the most visually appealing desktop environment.
