Connecting to the Address Book is now done through Akonadi.  This should work 
with little-to-no configuration, though.

I currently experience random Akonadi crashes, which prevents me from adding 
new entries to the address book (or browsing existing entries) until Akonadi 
is restarted and KMail/Kontact reconnects to the Akonadi server.

I initially though this was due to DBus restarts when upgrades are done, but 
I've also had random crashes without an DBus restart/upgrade.
