Install And Tesk KDE Frameworks 5 Beta 3 On Fedora 20 And Fedora 21

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the KDE Frameworks 5 will be used as default on Fedora 21 with KDE, both the KDE 4 and KDE 5 libraries being used side by side. While a bunch of KF5 packages have been already included in Fedora Rawhide, more will be available, starting with the next week. Fedora 21 wil be an interesting release, since the GNOME version uses GNOME 3.14, the first desktop environment with official Wayland support.

KDE Frameworks 5 Beta 3 has been recently released, coming with bug-fixes, improvements for Qt5, enhancements for the kdelibs modularisation and general improvements that enables the users to improve both their applications and the user experience.
