KDE "After years of focusing on further improving KDE4 two weeks ago the developers of the free desktop announced the next big step for their project: KDE Frameworks 5.0. But as long-time developer - and Plasma team leader - Aaron Seigo points out in an interview with derStandard.at/web, the source-incompatible changes shall be held to a minimum. Also calls Frameworks 5.0 only the "first step", new Applications and Workspace releases are to follow later, Seigo goes on to talk about the chances in the mobile market with Plasma Active and further areas of collaboration with the other big free desktop: GNOME."

The KDE major versions follow the QT major versions, in this case it's basically going to be KDE 4.x continued on QT5. So why are we seeing QT5 so fast? One word: Wayland.

I do wish they'd get someone remotely sane to clean up the various settings dialogs into something more cohesive, having to go to 3-4 completely different sets of dialogs to tweak the look of my desktop is just silly


Wayland will rock, can't wait.
