FYI only. 

i thought you'd might like another example of people being confused about 
releases etc.

this is the content of an email that just appeared on opensuse-kde list

subject: 
[opensuse-kde] How do i switch to KDE 5 / plasma 5 / KF 5 or whatever it's 
called now

content: 
Hi,

how can I switch to KDE5? Or is it called Plasma 5? or KF5? 
I'm running openSUSE 13.2 with KDE 4...

regards

Ian
