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."

KDE 5 is not the "next big thing". It's the "next little thing". It is not planned to be the same type of complete overhaul as 4.0 was. It simply looks like a good excuse to get rid of some old API/ABI stuff that has been retained for compatibility reasons, and better integration between Qt and KDE. That's about it. Everything else looks to be incremental changes the same as you get between minor versions.
