    "KDE 5" likely won't see the same issue that KDE 4.0 did. KDE is looking to disband the concept of the "Software Compilation" (all KDE programs released on the same day as part of a big upgrade, ready or not) which caused the KDE 4.0 issue (4.0 libraries were ready, 4.0 applications were not). With "KDE 5", you get the Frameworks 5 libraries, and each KDE program will release updates when they are good and ready, sticking with version 4 libraries in the meantime.
