Looks quite nice. I like hiding advanced parts that I do not need all the 
time. I also like just printing a summary of recurrence and reminders and 
let the user set it in a small extra dialog.

I miss some things from current functionality:
- public/private/secret setting: Actually I never got, what it was for, 
since up to know I didn't use KOrganizer in a Groupware enviroment. But I 
think in a groupware enviroment it makes sense to have this.
- free/busy stuff in the participants tab for events. Also makes most sense 
in a groupware enviroment.
- repeating on several week days at once. I never used this, but someone 
might have. in current KOrganizer you can place checkmarks at several 
- a quick dropdown to set usual % values of task completion. actually I do 
not get why I should enter 13,3% or something like that in there. The 
current 0,10,20,30,40,50...% would have been sufficient to me I think if I 
actually used this feature at all.
