The rather unfortunate situation is that KDE, and probably other end user 
software projects, are in a kind of limbo caused by the OpenSync project's 
delay of their 0.40 release.

It was planned to be released in fall 2008 and several KDE PIM developers had 
a work meeting with OpenSync people in Berlin to make sure the KDE PIM 
components were up to date.
Unfortunately OpenSync did not only not finish in time, there seems to be no 
plan or even committment to do it any time soon.

If anyone comes across a more actively maintained syncing framework, I am sure 
the KDE PIM people would appreciate hearing about it.
