The problem seems to be that there were two information flows. If you visit the KDE announcements site, you will find advertisement language about how everything is new and improved. But like in this 2006 LWN article and many others, the plans for KDE 4.0 were clearly outlined from the start: maturity and functionality would appear later in the 4 series.
Like others have remarked, as a Free Software user you should be aware that you receive a product WITHOUT ANY warranty. Read the license, always a good idea. At the same time, it must be annoying to do a distribution upgrade and see your desktop stop functioning.
