Cirkuit 0.4.2 release announcement

Version 0.4.2 of Cirkuit has just been released. Two major bugs have been fixed:
and additional bugs that could lead to segmentation faults are also fixed now.
A part from bugfixes, there is one change in the user interface: the status bar has been removed. I remember reading a discussion on plasma-devel about status bars in general, and I realized that the status bar in Cirkuit was really sub-optimal. For example, error messages were displayed on the statusbar only and they could easily be unnoticed. Now, a KMessageWidget is used to notify the user of preview generation events. I think it is quite an improvement over the statusbar: the messages are much more visible now and the user is still not required to click anything to go on with his work.
A couple of screenshots showing Cirkuit without the status bar and with active messages:
