This page is a bit confusing. I first thought that a KNewsTicker Plasmoid is indeed available for SC 4, and that some other version has been abandoned. After careful rereading combined with the fact that I can't find the Plasmoid in my distro (openSUSE 11.2), I now believe that the plasmoid has been dropped.
If KNewsTicker has been dropped altogether, I think we should state this very clearly in the opening sentence and probably drop the mention of the aborted porting effort, as this is only going to confuse.
Alternatively, we could make this page about the version for KDE3 if it makes sense to still use that. Or we could consider removing the page completely. Claus chr 09:50, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
The confusion arose because, at the time that the page was started, a KDE SC4 port had been started. Then, some time later, I spoke to the developer, who confirmed that he was no longer working on it, and there would be no release. The problem is that the only image I have clearly shows that it is a SC 4 desktop, so I can't just drop all mention of 4 without causing even more confusion. I've done an edit that I hope will be a bit clearer, but, as always, feel free to edit again if you can think of a better way of making the situation clear. --annew 13:35, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
