Agreed, but note that a reboot isn't necessary.  Restarting kde works but 
isn't necessary either.  All that's necessary is restarting plasma-

FWIW, plasma is still under HEAVY development, tho.  4.7 is supposed to 
bring a some big changes, including I believe, the full per-activity 
application thing.  (There were tiny hints of it in 4.6, the to activity 
entry paralleling to desktop in the window menu if you have multiple 
activities configured, etc, but that by itself wasn't enough to be 
terribly useful, yet.)  4.5 was really when it finally got the basics 
down and stable enough to be what I'd describe as a stable replacement 
for kde3, and 4.6 I think had some under-the-hood stuff for the next 
feature leap, but there wasn't a whole lot in the GUI, yet.  So I'm 
really looking forward to 4.7, in that regard.  (And also because the 
early 4.6 series had some nasty issues that I've worked around now so I 
can't be really sure whether they're gone or not, but I'll be glad for it 
to be history, for sure.)

If I read the release schedule correctly, 4.6.95 (4.7-rc2) was supposed 
to have been released last week, and I was all set to try it, but it 
appears that I either read things wrong or it was delayed a week.  I 
often run betas of selected packages or even live development versions, 
but early kde4 was so bad even the releases were barely alpha quality.  
So I've not dared try the stuff they didn't consider even release 
quality.  But I thought I'd try rc2 at least, this time, and see how it 
went, then maybe rc1 or even beta2 next cycle.  So I didn't upgrade to 
4.6.5.  But it seems like I have a few more days... they've released rc1 
to the distros but not to the public, yet.
