During development, the KDE community sets goals in features and dates for upcoming releases of various projects. This applies for the bigger projects like Frameworks or Plasma. This way, the teams knows when it would be a good time to add a new feature or when it's time to focus on cleaning up any bugs in preparation for a release. Any plans are tentative schedules and the final dates are generally decided on the release-team mailing list.
See Policies/Application_Lifecycle for what gets released where.
