Does this portend the end of the line for still needing any kde4 and qt4 support for ~arch users, and moving Gentoo to a pure qt5 and plasma 5 kde environment? Last time I updated my Kaos and KDE Neon installs, IIRC they were still hanging on to a few qt4 and kde4 packages. Are we on Gentoo ~arch almost ready for the big complete move to 5? Surely it can't be much longer.....

There is no 'complete' 5, the existence of kdelibs-4 and Qt-4 is entirely dependent on your selection of Applications. kde-apps-meta will probably contain kdelibs-4 dependent apps until 17.12, which is the deadline for applications to be ported.

The upgrade from Plasma-4 to Plasma-5 is completely unrelated to Applications, Plasma-5 is, of course, entirely KF5-based.

Thanks for the clarification, asturm. Good to know- I can stop wondering about it now.
