Is that the Linux Mint Team is small, but are lingered long and shows these issues..... KDE and XFCE need more affection and more attention undoubtedly. To keep waiting. Best regards.
Going by the latest Linux Mint Monthly News post (Mint blog) they're probably waiting for Ubuntu to release the 3.8.0-25 kernel update as the default kernel (3.8.0-19) has been found to cause problems (no HDMI sound, system freezes and kernel panics). Checking the updates this morning it appears that Ubuntu has just now released the 3.8.0-25 kernel update so we should see a Mint KDE RC within the next few days or week at the most.
That being said, historically the KDE version of Linux Mint is released one month after the main edition(s) are released. Same with the XFCE version. That would put the potential release date at the end of this month.
