Highlights of KDE 4.0 Alpha 1 are:

* A new visual appearance through Oxygen
* New frameworks to build applications with, providing vastly improved hardware and multimedia integration (through Solid and Phonon), spelling and grammar checking, to name just a few

KDE Four Live Alpha 1 & compiz-meta

KDE 4.0 Alpha 1 has been released, code-named "Knut" (btw my reasoning was: "small but growing and being forgotten soon"). And of course it's accompanied by a new KDE Four Live version and packages for openSUSE. Just keep in mind that it's the first Alpha release which is totally unusable and not representive for KDE 4[.0]. Smile

Also:

Inspired by Benji’s great work I have tried and created a YaST Meta Package that will fetch and install everything that is required to run the latest Compiz, including Composite Community plugins and a brand new settings manager.

All you need to do to get these goodies is install yast2-meta-package. Fire up konqueror and click on this:

Get those here.
