Those problems have been resolved before the final release of KDE 4.2.0. 
Your address books and calendars will automatically be imported in 
Akonadi. This will make them available in KPilot. The other KDE PIM 
applications (Kontact, KAddressBook, KOrganizer, KMail, etc.) will 
continue to use the address books and calendars through the old 
mechanism. If you don't use KPilot, then nothing will change for you 
compared to KDE 3.5 or KDE 4.1.
