I tried to give some quick overview in my other mail. My issue is that I=20
want to be quite confident that any possible remaining data loss issue has=
been fixed. I did not yet test it myself, but I do read kdepim and kdepim-
users mailing lists regularily in the last months to get an impression on=20
the current state.
Anyway, I suggest that you also subscribe to at least kdepim-users when=20
you like to try out KDEPIM 2 right now. You may read there about some=20
issues users who already use it seem to have. I think it does not make=20
that much sense to replicate that information here. There are issues with=20
mail search - not that it ever worked really nice with KDEPIM 1 IMHO -,=20
auto completion, there are some performance issues with Akonadi Nepomuk=20
feeding that I hope will be mostly resolved with KDEPIM 4.8.2 and some=20
other usability stuff as far as I remember from my reading right now.
Anyway once I am confident that any known mail loss issues have been fixed=
and no new one appeared for a while I really do like to use it and=20
contribute with bug reports for any issue I still see then. KDE developers=
are working really hard to make the Akonadi based KDEPIM rocking and I=20
really do appreciate it. I think in the short to middle term it will be=20
better than KDEPIM 1. And in the long term it will leave it behind=20
completely. As I do think the architecture to use a database like approach=
to PIM metadata is a good one.
Its a bit like all the big changes in KDE SC 4.0. There it also took=20
developers and testers also quite a while to make it production ready. I=20
do think KDEPIM 2 is getting there now. About two major releases after=20
introducing it to KDE SC again with KDE SC 4.6. KDE SC 4.2 also was also=20
way better then KDE SC 4.0 and the first one I installed onto on my Debian=
systems. So I do think that I like to test it soon. Two or three major=20
releases after initial release + some minor release added to the mix, lets=
say 4.8.2 or 4.9.1 should be quite good I bet ;).
