Include KDE 4.5 in opensuse 11.3

Feature state

Rejected Information


both are currently due in July, i feel 11.3 should include 4.5.

yes, it would knock 11.3 back by a month or two, in my opinion that would be worth the end result.

I agree.  There are a number of big changes scheduled for 4.5, including the KDE PIM switch to akonadi, so I think making people wait another 8 months for them would be a big mistake.

Akonadi in 4.4.0 is already a mess, and this is *only* for the addressbook, not for the whole PIM. Basing on this experience, you can expect a lot of problems with PIM on Akonadi, so it would cost openSUSE a lot of reputation.

Dont wait for 4.5

KDE SC 4.5 will be released in August, not July.

It is delayed, because 4.4 was pushed back to February to do more testing with Qt 4.6.

February + six months = August.

I'm ready to wait on 11.3 release longer because of the KDE 4.5 SC.

I don't think openSUSE should change it's roadmap to match the roadmap for other projects. If we do that for KDE, you open pandora's box for requests from all the other projects we rely on.
Besides, I think any user which requires to have the latest and greatest version of KDE, probably knows how to update it without a total distribution update.

Yes ... I agree with Mr Erich. openSUSE should not alter its roadmap. For those who need the latest, we do have the buildservice ...

I don't think we should rely on KDE 4.5 being finished in time for 11.3, but I would like to see it, in openSUSE 12.0 (unless we're on KDE 4.6 by then.)

I also don't think there should be a problem for those who know enough to care about it.  For instance, under openSUSE 11.2 I was running a factory version of KDE.

We have a fixed schedule of 8 months and we will not postpone due to major packages. The KDE team has always been good of providing updates in the Build Service in time for those that want it.
