With the release of KDE 4.0 many users were disappointed about missing functions. And while KDE 4.1 is out the discussion still goes on. However, most users seem to forget that there is a perfectly valid possibility to use KDE right now without updating yet to a KDE 4.x release: continue using KDE 3.5. In fact, many business desktops and many industry setups with KDE do use KDE 3.5.x, and will continue to do so for quite some months and years in the future.
And this alternative will get another release in August: KDE 3.5.10. That is actually the second KDE 3.5.x release since KDE 4.0 was released, and shows how much the KDE project is committed to its user base.
