Well, yes and no. Yes, because there was a bug that needed to be fixed. But 
this will always happen since there is no bugfree kdelibs and does not mean 
that kdelibs is bad quality in general; thus no---it doesn't say anything 
about the quality of kdelibs.

(even if so, do you have any other conclusions than the necessity to upgrade 
kdelibs regularly?)

Hmm? I don't believe this 100%. I do believe the "every", but other than that: 
why do we provide BC then if nobody upgrades anyway? This would even mean 
that corporate users are not interested in 4.0.x upgrades, right? Which would 
be 0% less work compared to a kdelibs-4.x upgrade, BTW.

Most certainly.
