I hate to say this, but that was my understanding as well.  According to
the Gentoo devs list, nothing is being done on KDE 3.5 and they are
already removing some packages.  Bad thing is, KDE 4 is just not
finished enough for me to switch to it yet.  It's getting there but not
quite there yet.

I would have hoped that they would support KDE 3.5 at least until KDE
4.4 or 4.5 was out and stable.  At least that way most features would be
working and bugs worked out.  This makes me consider using another
