Quit complaining! hehe, just kidding :)

The lag time as you call it would be the time which you see them applied in 
upstream SVN, and the release day for KDE 4 packages. Our next release is 
4.0.1, which those packages have been tagged (typically a week before their 
actual release which gives distributions the chance to have them packaged and 
ready for release day). So next week, on KDE 4.0.1 release day, we will go 
ahead and release the new packages.

It depends on what you mean by "configurable" in this case for the plasma panel. 
4.0.1 will include some updates which will provide more configuration choices, 
however it seems as if the change which many are looking for, the ability to 
change its size, was just introduced into the code repository, which means we 
won't see it more than likely until next month (March), or the 4.0.2 release.

Right now you will see KDE 4 feature changes on a monthly basis as that is what 
we (KDE) have decided on for the KDE 4 release schedule at this time.

4.0.1 February
4.0.2 March
4.0.3 April
4.0.4 May
4.0.5 June
4.0.6 July
4.1.0 August

Hope this helps a bit.
