April 20th, 2016: Updates in area51

The unofficial ports repository area51 has been updated with a number of KDE Frameworks 5 and related ports: KDE Frameworks 5 has been updated to version 5.21.0, released April 9th. KDE Plasma 5 has been updated to 5.6.3, released April 19th. KDE Applications have been updated to the newly-released 16.04.

April 18th, 2016: CMake 3.5.2 has landed

April 14th, 2016: DigiKam 4.14.0 has landed

DigiKam and related ports have been updated in the official ports tree to 4.14.0.

This is a huge leap, as we are moving from 4.2.0 (released in August 2014) to 4.14.0 (released in October 2015). Version 4.14.0 is the last KDE4-based release, and 5.0.0 will be based on KDE Frameworks 5.

March 30th, 2016: Plasma 5.6.1 in area51

The regular bugfix release of Plasma 5.6.1 has been added to the unnoficial ports tree in the area51 repository. The plasma5-branch in the repository builds the most modern and up-to-date Plasma shell.

March 30th, 2016: Plasma 5.6.1 in area51

March 29th, 2016: digiKam 4.14 in area51

The latest version of digiKam for KDE4 technology, digiKam 4.14, has been added to the unofficial ports tree in area51. The trunk of that repository reflects what is "up next" for merging into the official ports.

March 23rd, 2016: Plasma 5.6 in area51

Just a day after the release of Plasma 5.6, it has been added to the unofficial ports tree in the area51 repository. The plasma5-branch in the repository builds the most modern and up-to-date Plasma shell. The KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma 5 are now co-installable with KDE4 from official ports, now that the installation of headers has been untangled (since March 16th).

March 19th, 2016: CMake 3.5.0 has landed

Official ports have been updated to CMake 3.5.0. This brings CMake completely up-to-date with the upstream release.

March 16th, 2016: KDE4 reorganization has landed

Official ports have been updated with a new structure for KDE4 installation. The header installation location for kdelibs4-based ports has changed to include/kde4 instead of include (which consequently causes several other ports to have their installation paths changed too).

The idea behind this is to reduce path conflicts between KDE4 ports and the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 ports that will be installed into include/KF5.
