Yes.  This is a good thing.

I'm still waiting to hear what constitutes "so much".  Michael is partly 
right, I believe - there are no File Size view & Album View (as defaults, at 
least).  Tree view has been implemented differently, so requires you to turn 
on an option in Konqueror settings (In the file manager settings - from 
either Dolphin or Konqueror - select "Views", "Details" and check 
"expandable folders").  Also, I have a "subversion view" available, because 
I installed kdesvn, so other views may be available by installing optional 
components - I haven't looked.
