[Kontact] Can't find newsticker plugin

I recently upgraded to KDE 3.4, which now includes Kontact 1.1. I can't find the newsticker plugin for the summary view. I can get newsfeeds using the Feeds component, but that's in a separate window. I'd also like to be able to display some RSS feeds in my summary view, the way I did with previous versions of Kontact.

Any ideas? Am I missing something? Thanks.

Well, I finally managed to get the newsticker back by uninstalling and reinstalling kontact.

Now I have a problem losing my New Message icon every time I change from the KMail component to another component. I'm posting separately about this in hopes that someone has an answer.
