Installation on an up-to-date unstable system went smoothly. However, 
using the updated Plasma has been rather rocky, so far. With desktop 
effects enabled, KWin crashes every few minutes. I blame this more on 
NVidida's driver than on KDE, and surely not on the package maintainers.

With desktop effects disabled, the contrast of text against background 
in the taskbar is rather low. I'm using the "Air for netbooks" desktop 
theme, where it is least bad, but still far from good. Does anyone have 
an idea what I can do about this?

In the settings for Desktop Search I noticed a new checkbox "Enable 
Email Indexer". Does this work separately from the File Indexer? IOW, am 
I supposed to exclude the folders where KMail keeps its data from file
