I downloaded the upgrade today and noticed a couple of things:
- lost all my emoticons from my keyboard (Samsung keyboard is my only choice in Settings)
- the multi-task bar ALWAYS appears on the Home screen. I can't seem to turn it off anymore
- no Camera shortcut on the locked screen (camera widget does not appear on the list of locked screen widgets)
The only noticeable difference I see after upgrading are the color changes to the icons on the Home screen. I really don't recommend folks upgrading to Kit Kat. The previous version was fine as is.

Reboot a couple of times after an upgrade to ensure everything is good.
The Samsung touchWiz interface that lays on top of Android can be a really big pain.
Settings. Lock screen. Lock screen widgets(customize).
settings. Language and input. click the little slider buttons to the right of the Samsung keyboard.
for the multi taskbar/notifications. settings home. And I'm running a custom ROM, so , home, app and widget drawer?
You can also push and hold on an empty spot on the home screen to see other choices that may come up.

Yes, I rebooted about 3 times and the multi task slider did disappear.
As for the other new features of Kit Kat, I can't see them anywhere on the phone. Thanks nasty!
