The KDE Software Collection has been updated to KDE Applications 14.12.
The KDE developers have started porting their software to KDE Frameworks and Qt
5. For a list of the software that has been ported see [the announcement].
When a KDE Frameworks port of a KDE application is considered stable, it is
released with KDE Applications and development and bug fixes are no longer
applied to the Qt4/KDE4 version. This means that as ported versions of
applications are released, we will switch to the newer version. At the same
time, we are getting rid of KDE module prefixes (e.g. _kdebase-konsole ->
The result of this transition is that some packages will be using Qt5 and some
will be using Qt4. We are working hard to make the transition smooth for KDE4
users, but things might look different depending on your configuration. Please
adjust themes and colors as necessary for the two toolkits. See [the wiki]

Please report upstream bugs to the KDE bugzilla. Feel free to CC me.
For consistency with upstream naming, the lirc-utils package was renamed to
lirc. The wpc8769l kernel drivers were dropped and can be obtained by installing
[lirc-wpc8769l from the AUR].
Note that 0.9.2 is a major release and comes along with several upstream and
packaging changes. In particular, the `irexec.service` systemd unit was removed.
Please edit and copy the template `/usr/share/lirc/contrib/irexec.service` if
you want to keep using that service.
