4.2.2 is a bit behind, tho it might be the latest available in some 
distributions.  There's the 4.2.3 and 4.2.4 bugfixes, and 4.3.0, with 
4.3.1 coming out shortly.  Kde4 is still rapidly maturing, with some 
pretty big bug fixes every release, and if you're not running the latest, 
you're seeing bugs that have already been fixed.  So indeed, 4.2.2 is a 
bit behind.

I'm running 4.3.0.  At least here, the open terminal here action still 
exists.  For a directory/directory-symlink icon, it's in the context 
menu, right click, actions, open terminal here.  For the currently open 
(not selected, the one actually displayed) directory, it's under the 
tools menu, open terminal.  (There's a default keyboard shortcut 
associated with it as well, shift-F4.)

It's also possible to display a mini-cli [1] terminal panel directly in 
dolphin, if desired.  View, Panels, Terminal, is the toggle, F4 the 
shortcut (thus the shift-F4 above for launching a separate terminal 
window is a mod of the simple F4 mini-cli shortcut).


[1] CLI: command line interface, as contrasted with GUI, graphical user 
interface.  Mini indicating it's a panel attached to another window, 
here, dolphin, not its own full CLI window like konsole.
