I've just emerged KDE 4.9.3, and my favourite window decoration, the Tabstrip, has disappeared :cry:

Is there any hope of getting it back?

It seems there's a binary incompatibility for window decorations from 4.8 to 4.9 - so maybe it just needs an update? Or it has been dropped because of lack of interest.

I asked the same question on the KDE forum, and have received this reply from KDE developer mgraesslin:

Quote:
Tabstrip is a window decoration which should have never been released in the first place. It was basically a window decoration to demonstrate to developers how to use the window tabbing functionality. Given that Oxygen supports window tabbing there has never been the need to release with the window decoration. The fact that it got released was a mistake.

After the first release with the decoration it did not see any further activity. The decoration had been unmaintained and the logical step was to remove it, especially given that the API needed some rework.
