Newer KDE/Plasma stuff in Stable? (was: Re: Some KDE applications still outdated)
You kinda hi-jacked this thread, thus changing subject.

I am not aware of one. I believe there has been a discussion about it here
somewhat recently. The Debian Qt/KDE team is quite small… and they are
occupied with getting the new stuff into Sid/Testing already in addition to
attending to bug reports and security fixes for Stable. So I think someone
else would need to volunteer for doing a backport.
If you want to have new Plasma/KDE stuff you have to either use Testing, the
upcoming Buster, or Unstable.
