Hi Alex,

Your frustration is noted and we will try to inform you next time. In this case the problem was detected based on the rc1 tarballs. The time between tagging RC1 and the release is very, very limited, just a couple of hours. The simple option in this case was to increase the dependency...

In my opinion that is exactly what a RC is for, finding these problems, find a fix before the final release. If a developer does not like the fix, he can still fix it before final. But again, we failed to communicate to you, a simple message 'Hi Alex, we fixed it temporary, but you might want to review our solution' should have been send.

Hope this clarifies,


KDE Developer
