maybe because the hard feature freeze was on November 8th and nobody expects
that they need to adjust their applications after the hard feature freeze?
Also at least I had not known about it (which really surprises me given that
it's about usage of a KWin feature). Might be that I missed a thread on
plasma-devel, but mid/end November I was totally stressed and did not have
much time for KDE. Dezember I was on vacations, then Christmas and New Year,
so yeah in my case it's no surprise I did not notice it.
And now it's really, really late to fix these issues. If there would not have
been the delay due to another RC we would not have a chance to get out fixes
which are actually tested. And to me RC means "only showstoppers shall be
fixed" based on experience what last minute changes which cannot be properly
tested can cause issues in a compositor. So no, in KWin that won't be fixed
for 4.10. Also the thread on the release team mailing list nicely illustrates
why we should stick to such schedules.
Overall I'm rather disappointed on how the situation came up and how it is
handled now. It's not too late to revert the change and do it for 4.11 in a
coordinated way that doesn't require rushed in changes. It's the "don't break
userspace thing" Linus is always talking about, isn't it?
