As you may have heard, KDE 4.11 will be the last major release from the KDE 4 series. The upcoming version will be kept for two years.
For KDE 11, the KDE team will just fix some bugs and they will concentrate of launching KDE 5, Qt 5 and KDE Plasma Workspaces 2.
This is what Aaron Seigo (KDE developer) said on his blog:
- It will be the last feature release in the 4.x series of Plasma Workspaces. Feature development will switch fully to the Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5 based Plasma Workspaces 2.
- We will be providing stabilization releases (bug fixes, translation improvements, etc.) for two years for the 4.11 release of KDE Plasma Workspaces.
