It's not a solution, but instead of irc and mailing-lists informations can be 
shared with simple things like websites and for actual infomations in blogs as 
well. Maybe it sound a little bit old fashioned, but it works. The newest 
informations for newbies like me are on the website - Latest News:

14th February 2010	 KDE SC 4.4.0 for Windows available
8th December 2009	 KDE 4.3.4 for Windows available
11th August 2009	 KDE 4.3.0 for Windows available

And then have a look at techbase.kde.org/projects/KDE_on_Windows revision 
History.  For an Outsider this Project looks pretty dead  - you have to join 
the mailing list to see that the project is still alive. 

But would you join the list of a dead project? Most potential helpers don't.
