Mint always has an RC that runs for quite some time to the public before finalizing it. Just look at the announcement threads to get an idea of the scheduling of RC's versus final releases.

Both Adept and Synaptic are easily attainable from the CLI with a simple command.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install adept && sudo apt-get install synaptic
But as of right now, I am running the x64 version of Kubuntu with KDE 4.2.4 because it is very stable and works great. I ran 4.2.90 for a bit, and it was stable for the most part, but there were a few issues that made me drop back down to 4.2.4 until 4.3 is finalized later this month.
KPackageKit has its up and downs, but for me it hasn't been an issue.
