Thanks Kevin for doing this!

I noticed you  didn't update the branches in projects.kde.org, I left
master as a KF5-trunk and 4.7 as KDE4-stable branches.
Plugins developers: remember to look there when you do so, it's important
for keeping track of how to generate translations for each modules (and I
think some parts of the CI use it as well).

Long life to KDevelop and KF5!!! :D

PS: I've used it today for doing some actual development for the first
time. *excitement*
PS1: Note that I spent more time fixing things in kdevelop5 for doing the
"actual development" than "actually developing".
