I upgraded to the 4.2 betas in 8.10 using the PPAs, and I also noticed
that the Quick Access plasmoid disappeared.  I still have notes and
show dashboard, though.  Not sure about wifi manager, I haven't used
that.  I did delete my plasmarc file to fix something else, and that
didn't bring back Quick Access.  It still isn't an option when I'm
adding plasmoids.  It's possible that there is something else in my
.kde from 4.1 that is causing this problem.  I'll try renaming my .kde
and getting a fresh one when I get home and see if that fixes it.
Other than this, though, KDE 4.2 is a huge improvement over 4.1.
