Not really. It only means we're giving some time for application developers to make progress
while kdelibs is changing. But we're not yet approaching API stability imho, if we want to drop 
qt3support in kio's API (it's before 4.0 or never) then we need someone to rewrite most of
the file dialog... Plus all the things we wanted to do for 4.0 like switching to the xdg shared-mime
standard (which has api implications) etc.

No change?

If you need input from everyone, then this is a topic for kde-core-devel, not for release-team.
release-team is only the internal organization of the release team, isn't it?

PS: thanks for getting this ball rolling, much appreciated.
