They don't get the new features. People using old libraries don't get
the features of the newer version. Its always like this.

Phonon's status is legitimately confusing since its had no major
development in a year+. It was taken out of kdelibs since that made
coordinating releases with Qt hard. Perhaps it would make sense to
have a Phonon release in some months to allow people to use these
features before Qt updates.
