Updates to KDE applications 17.08 and Plasma/KDE meta packages
Pino is just uploading these.
The updated meta packages do no longer depend on KDE 4 based kde-runtime. This
makes it easier to remove it once you removed the last KDE 4 application
depending on it.
There are still some like Amarok or KMyMoney. For KMyMoney upstream plans to
release a KF5/Qt5 based version soon. There have been some porting efforts for
Amarok, but I am not aware of their current state.
And there are quite a bit more like basket, kopete 17.08 (also in the process
of being ported, ready for 17.12 already?) and others:
% apt-cache rdepends kde-runtime | wc -l
So still quite a challenge to get rid of KDE 4 and Qt 4 based stuff.
I appreciate this careful polishing and updating of these packages.
Of course I also look forward to Plasma 5.12 LTS and KDE Applications 17.12 as
well as KF 5.42. It is a ton of packages and sub projects to keep track off in
order to provide a fully fledged Plasma desktop with all bells and whistles.
