This is a tracking bug for Change: KDE Frameworks 5
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/KDE_Frameworks_5
KDE Frameworks 5 is a set of libraries and technologies developed in the KDE project over the past 18 years. Most of the frameworks come from the kdelibs module, which has been split, cleaned up, dependencies were strightened and packed into individual libraries. This allows developers and projects outside the KDE ecosystem to make use of these technologies and benefit from work of the KDE Community.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 Accepted Changes Freeze Deadline is on 2014-07-08 .
At this point, all accepted Changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be so enabled at Change Freeze.
This bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate that it achieved completeness. Status will be provided to FESCo right after the deadline.

I put together a short blurb about this for the RNs. Could you please have a look, Dan?
Could you maybe be more specific that this are only *libraries*, not the KDE Workspace? Most people still imagine the workspace whenever they hear something "KDE", I'd like to avoid the confusion that we are shipping Plasma 5 in Fedora 21 (that's F22 material ;-)). Otherwise it's OK, thank you for writing it!
Thanks Dan, I reworded the first paragraph, which now reads:
"Fedora 21 includes a new set of libraries for developers of C++ and Qt applications, KDE Frameworks 5, the successor to KDE Platform 4. KDE Frameworks 5 are based on Qt 5 and provide developers with access to a broad variety of technologies and tools developed by the KDE Community, without having to depend on the entire KDE platform."
Great, thank you very much!
