  Sure you can. I don't see a big problem there. The announcement would have a categorized list of app names and versions being released on that day, and before it the usual "highlights in writing" extract.

  I don't necessarily think so. It's worth keeping in mind that having a unified version number for "KDE Applications" doesn't end the confusion, and we meet that confusion all the time. KDE still releases other applications with individual version numbers outside of KDE Applications. But very often I hear exchanges like:
  A: What version of Krita/Yakuake/etc are you on?
  B: YY.MM
  ... even though they're not released with KDE Applications at all. Unifying the KDE Applications version number won't fix that.
  Increasingly I think the only real fix is to go individual-for-all and change the public messaging to be around "Today is KDE apps release day" instead of "Today KDE apps YY.MM is out".
