If you were wondering how far would KDE 4, the answer is to KDE 4.11 or, properly, to Plasma Workspaces 4.11 , whose publication is expected in mid-August, according to the release schedule. According to the same schedule maintenance updates for that version 4.11.5 KDE end with the January 7, 2014 . But it will not.
Since the launch
KDE 4.11 desktop will not receive new features base-all software in kde-workspace s, kdelibs , kderuntime , etc-, as developers begin to work fully on QT5 to ascend to the next level, Plasma Workspaces 2 (“KDE 5″). But not going to leave or force users to gain release: KDE 4.11 receive support for two years , including bug fixes, improved translations, etc..
Also, applications that make up the environment will follow their own calendar, and is very possible we see a KDE 4.12 or higher with new versions of applications , no change in the base. The decision to launch when extending these applications is only the developers of these applications, redundant, although it is normal to agree.
far the most important of the information published yesterday the familiar KDE developer Aaron Seigo in his blog, where he anticipated something of the future of the project. A change that will appeal to the user is that of updates, which will be divided into two types based desktop and applications. As indicated Seigo, six months between each major version of the desktop base is acceptable, but the applications are moving at a different pace, a faster one.
are more Seigo forward the details, but the discussion is still active. We will keep an eye on everything that is cooked in which is the most popular desktop currently at its next and final production version will reach an unprecedented strength.yarpp-related-none” class=”yarpp-related
