It will *replace* any version of KDE 4 you might have installed!
The Plasma 5 Desktop has gotten rid of its Qt4 legacy. Since the release of
Applications 17.12 there's nothing left which is based on kdelibs4.
What is the NEWS in this batch of updates:
+- A new package 'python-enum34' is the stdlib enum module available in
+ Python 3.4 backported for previous versions of Python. This is needed by
+ the updated 'PyQt5' package. I also added a 'sip' package that is newer
+ than the original Slackware package , both sip and PyQt5 updates were needed
+ to support Qt 5.11.2 better and make the KItemModels Framework compile.
- Frameworks update is a stability release, see:
- https://www.kde.org/announcements/kde-frameworks-5.50.0.php .
- One framework was added, 'syndication' which used to be part of KDEPIM
- so effectively no package was added to the set.
-- Plasma 5.13.5 is an incremental upgrade in the Plasma Desktop 5.13
- release cycle, bringing important stability and performance fixes.
- See https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.13.5.php
- You may want to read about all the new features in Plasma 5.13 here:
-- Applications 18.08.1 is the first stability update for this quarter's
- applications set.
- See https://www.kde.org/announcements/announce-applications-18.08.1.php .
- The 'kpat' package is no longer present because it requires new
- dependencies (fc-solver and its deps) that Slackware cannnot provide.
-- In applications-extra I have upgraded 'okteta', 'ktorrent', 'kstars',
- 'krusader' and the KDE Development packages 'kdevelop', 'kdev-python'
- and 'kdev-php'.
