Jump to: navigation, search

The KDE Applications release which is planned for December 2014 will contain applications which are still based on Qt4 and kdelibs 4.x, and the first stable Qt5+KF5-based release of some others. The decision will be taken on a per-application basis by the maintainers/core developers.

This page aims to provide an overview of the decisions which have been taken already. For some applications, it is important to know if a Qt5+KF5-based of their runtime dependencies (e.g., the Konsole KPart for an embedded terminal) will be available.
