Has anyone seen anything about a release date for Linux Mint 14 64 Bit with KDE?

This is not really the place for Mint questions.

Mint seems to be trying to focus on the things that differentiate it
from Ubuntu in recent releases - specifically, the Cinnamon
(GNOME-3-based) and Maté (GNOME-2-based) desktops, neither of which
Ubuntu offers.

If you want an Ubuntu base with KDE on top, try Kubuntu.

Saying that, KDE releases of Mint usually significantly lag behind the
GNOME-family releases, as in by over a month, so it may be that it's
not out yet but will appear in due course.

There *is* a Mint mailing list - I'm on it - but it is deathly quiet.
Mint users seem to prefer the official fora - a shame as I detest web
fora myself.
