That is what I thought, however since Monday, I have not received the normal 
daily updates and upgrades from Jaunty then.  After an update, my panel left 
the screen, so I don't get the update icon that always produced the Jaunty 
updates and upgrades.  Since the panel is gone, I have not had any updates or 
upgrades, and I still have no panel.  I would suspect that would be something 
they would address as critical, due to the number of people disabled by it.  I 
will just have to wait for the final, or relent to the to kde change.
