    I think KArchive is pretty interesting since it has support for a lot of formats while having no dependencies... And also, it's simple to use, you just feed it files and it does the job... If you install libraries for lzma for example, it automatically can support that format to...

      Will it make to Debian testing before the freeze? I hope this upcoming freeze won't be annoyingly long like the last one.

        Stay tuned for more KDE Frameworks 5 details tomorrow.
        Is it a radio station?

          What does this mean for someone who has KDE installed as a standard install on Arch? Will KDE 4 be automatically updated to 5 through a standard pacman update at any point?

          I tried the instructions in the linked article but gave up after it said it was going to replace something from my KDE 4 installation, or there was a conflict or something. And while this was mentioned in the article, I wasn't exactly clear whether I could just replace the package without issue, and I couldn't be bothered to research at the time so I abandoned it.

            not replace but additional install, both can coexist now

              KDE is an excellent operating system only missing a good desktop environment.

                  What does "this" mean for you in the context of the article?

                  Will KArchive work with Wayland? Sure
                  Will ThreadWeaver work with Wayland? Sure
                  Will Solid work with Wayland? Sure
                  Will KI18n work with Wayland? Sure
                  Will KCoreAddons work with Wayland? Sure
                  Will KWindowSystem work with Wayland? Probably not at this release
                  Will Sonnet work with Wayland? Sure
                  and so on

                  Cheers,

                    You mean good default settings and a good theme? Ah! It's way clearer that way.

                      dolphin, systemsettings, rekonq and other kde Frameworks apps run on Wayland.

                      Plasma-shell does not currently run... ...that will probably happen for the Plasma 2 release coming after the upcoming plasma release

                      Remeber, this is just the core kde libraries that are being released today

                        So what exactly does this mean? Is it just the "demodularization" of kdelibs that we're getting, or are apps getting bug fixes and new features? I'm not sure what the tangible benefit to the end-user is. (I just realized that if you rearrange the letters in 'user' you can make 'sure'. Nice!)

                          Oh god I hope it does.. I don't want to have to keep using KDE4 during the probably 9-month-long freeze, while every one else will be happy singing and dancing using KDE5..
                          Debian really needs to figure out a better way to do testing.. It is supposed to be rolling, but it doesn't really roll at all during the long freeze.. This is the biggest thing I hate about debian.. Although there is nothing else better, so I keep using it any way..

                            Debian orients itself around its stable releases. I can't see them letting KDE5 until it's proven to be solid. Whether that can happen in 6 months is anyone's guess...
                            I suspect that even if that does happen, derivatives like Aptosid will still package KDE5.

                              Yes, this article and the announcement it covers is about libraries

                              Applications are independent products, their respective developers decide on these things.
                              Some of them have started to prepare/port their applications for using the new libraries.
