OK, it turns out I was being super-overly-optimistic.

We now know that kdepim4.5beta1 is more alpha quality.
Especially, the data migration has a long way to go.

We recommend most people to stay away from it.

So I'm delaying beta2 for an extra couple weeks (until 4 Aug approx).

Then we shall see how things look.  If great improvement doesn't happen
in the next month, then we may have to delay until KDE SC 4.6.

I am truly sorry for any extra work or pain this may have caused.
