You know better than to ask when we will release. We will release when 
it's ready, not sooner. And there's still quite a bit of work to be done 
for S60 and Declarative UI.

And schedules slip. If I say we will release in October, it could happen 
in December. If I say December, it could be March/2010. if I say 
February/2010, it could be April. The ballpark is between October and 
February. I would give a 60-70% confidence that it's released in time for 
KDE 4.4.

PS: The current feature freeze target date is in about 2 months, but it 
too can slip.
