Hi,

I currently have KDE 4 installed using the stable version of the following meta packages:

Code:
kde-apps/kdeadmin-meta
kde-apps/kdeartwork-meta
kde-apps/kdebase-meta
kde-apps/kdegraphics-meta
kde-apps/kdenetwork-meta
kde-apps/kdesdk-meta
kde-apps/kdeutils-meta


After recently updating portage, a world update wants to pull in a mix of KDE 4.11.22 and KDE Applications 15.08.3 packages (all stable). Is that OK? What exactly will I end up with? Mostly KDE 5 with some "legacy" KDE 4 stuff (things not ported to Frameworks 5 yet), or KDE 4 with some "future" KDE 5 stuff (things that are ported to Frameworks 5, but work the same as they did in KDE 4)? Based on the slot numbers, it looks like the second option, but can someone confirm? I'm a bit concerned about the update. Can someone please shed a bit of light on the consequences?

Thanks!

Yes.

There is no KDE 5. ;)

The 4.11.22 packages represent the last there'll ever be Plasma 4 upgrade.
If you look close you will also find some kdelibs-4.14.16 upgrade in there.
The 15.08.3 packages you get as a stable upgrade right now are only those packages of the Applications 15.08 release that are kdelibs4-based.
And you might even find some 15.04.3 upgrade in there.
