In my opinion there are already major reasons in place which will let users
upgrade to a new version (tabbed browsing, LDAP, S/MIME, Keramik style/deco,
new icon theme/applications). Consider that some users stay with KDE 2-series
because they think of KDE 3.0 as "just a port" and will upgrade not until KDE 
3.1. If 3.1 would be released in November switching to 3 will be lengthened.

Concentrate on quality then and not new features in new apps. Concentrate on
the ever growing bug list for 6 weeks and then new features shortly after. If 
you are bored with bug hunting implement new features in a branch instead.

Yes, don't complain. It was never stated there would be 7 months to KDE 3.1.
