Hi Albert,

I saw you were busy Upgrading KDE Applications version to 16.11.70 such 

Could I make a tag for kf5-libkcddb, I prefer v5.25.0, because I migrate 
it, learn from libkscreen, to totally KF5 style!
k3b and other requires kf5-libkcddb projects (audex, kaudiocreator, 
audiocd-kio and soundkonverter) ?

Hi All,

My sincere thanks will goto Bernd (migrated audex to KF5) and Daniel

NOW libkcddb, just like libkscreen
https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=libkscreen.git is totally KF5 style! it is
able to simply use KF5::Cddb and KF5::CddbWidgets to target link
libraries, and header include also follow the KF5 style, for example,

At present,

* k3b https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=k3b.git

* audex

* kaudiocreator

* audiocd-kio

* soundkonverter https://github.com/isoft-linux/soundkonverter

they are KF5 ready! and tellico please use new kf5-libkcddb, the target
link libraries mentioned above ;-)

To Albert, so WHEN, the right moment, in the future freeze plan, I can
merge kf5 branch for all projects requires kf5-libkcddb? thanks a lot!
