Kevin's a dev so take what he says first, but here's the bit he left out.

kde4 is currently on a 6-month-minor and (almost) monthly micro/
maintenance release schedule... except they skip the last one as they 
focus on the betas/rcs, so there's four instead of five micro/maintenance 

4.3.0 was release in early August, and 4.4.0 is scheduled for early 
February.  Given the above schedule, the 4.3.4 release should be early 
December, without an update (well, there are the 4.4 prereleases) in 
January as they work on 4.4.0, thus nicely fitting around the holidays as 
well. =:^)
