    Default KDE 4.11 Will Be The Last Major KDE4 Workspaces Feature Release

    Phoronix: KDE 4.11 Will Be The Last Major KDE4 Workspaces Feature Release

    For those that didn't hear already, KDE 4.11 will be the last Plasma Workspaces feature release in the KDE4 series and this upcoming version will be maintained for a period of two years...

    4.11 will be the last feature release of the plasma-workspace (and plasma-netbook). Bugs will be fixed.
    Development of all other components (PIM, games...) will continue the same.
    There WILL be further KDE SC 4 series releases. the blog mentioned up to 4.13, but it might be above that. Only no new features will be added to the workspace.
    Just to clarify.

    So when will we finally get KDE 5.0 with Qt5?

    It will be released when it is ready. (Hopefully in the not too distant future)

    So the first alpha or beta builds of KDE 5 should be out soon for us to play with?

    Also this sounds like KDE SC 4 is reaching maturity and thus becoming stable much like KDE 3.5.10 was the last stable release for the 3.x series

    Expect an alpha or beta probably this holiday season. The current idea is to ship a finished product early next year, so this holiday season is about on the usual timetable.

    Again this is all subject to change if they realize they royally screwed something up or if something changes upstream

    Current roadmaps are shooting for early next year.

    Otherwise git.

    Never ever.
    Idiots like Michael and you just are too stupid to understand that since four years KDE is just the name of a community and that the KDE community releases three distinct product bundles:
    Plasma Workspaces, Applications, and Frameworks.

    After 4.11 those three won't even be released on the same date any longer.

    Calling people idiots over a technicality that only you seem to care about is a bit uncalled for... KDE products are usually (if not, always) released sharing a similar version number. I don't think we're going to see a 4.11 workspace mixed in with a 5.0 framework and a mix of 4.0 and 5.0 programs, so what's your point? It isn't idiotic or unrealistic to expect KDE 5 as a whole to be the next release after 4.11, and wondering when it will be released is a legitimately good question.
