of course the tag is now going in so everyone is laying off the commits to trunk/ for the modules that are included with kde 4.0.0. soon svn will open up for 4.0.1 bug fixing. we already have a couple poised for plasma, even though 4.0.0 isn't out; we just couldn't get every possible thing in in time.
the plasma team will come together to discuss the 4.1 plans in detail. in broad brushstrokes we'll be laying down the path for:
- bringing existing components to feature completeness

- improving the "little" things like multi-screen support
