Default Kitkat and bluetooth keyboards

Has anybody who has taken the Kitkat update noticed improvement on bluetooth keyboard connection issues?

Not sure what connection issues you're referring to. If you mean, does the keyboard go to sleep after a period of time and you have to press a key to wake it up then that hasn't changed.

I still have the same problems in 4.4 as in 4.3. Bluetooth working for a short period and than crashing or wifi unstable.
It's a problem with bluetooth 3.0 keyboards, caused by interference on the 2.4 ghz bandwith. I read there are going to be bleutooth fixes in 4.4.3, but it's not exactly clear what's meant by that.

I use a bluetooth keyboard all day long and see no interference problems.
