Yes, including Baloo integration in Dolphin and other applications 
that are already ported.

From quickly checking what was done for 4.13, I would also mention:
- fixes and new features in KMail (Laurent blogged about them)
- new features in Okular: tabs, magnifier, better media handling
- improvements in Kate (made during some sprint I guess)
- enhanced Palapeli (puzzle game)
and for those, who are interested:
- improvements and fixes in Umbrello (UML modeling)

Additionally, I would encourage users to test the PIM stack (again). 
From looking at the stats, the number of new bug reports decline. This 
could either be caused by people giving up on it, by the fact that 
everything has already been reported, or by the ongoing improvements 
in the KDEPIM stack, including work done by new Akonadi maintainers.

In other words, let us ask the "are we there yet?" question again for 
KDEPIM, and invite users to report thing that still might need to be
