[arch-announce] Dropping Plasma 4

Arch Linux: Recent news updates: Antonio Rojas announce at archlinux.org

Since the KDE 4 desktop has been unmaintained for several months and it's
becoming increasingly difficult to support two versions of Plasma, we are
removing it from our repositories. Plasma 5.5 has just been released and should
be stable enough to replace it.

KDE 4 installations will not be automatically upgraded to Plasma 5. However, we
recommend all users to upgrade or switch to a maintained alternative as soon as
possible, since any future update may break the KDE 4 desktop without prior
notice. See [the wiki][1] for instructions on how to upgrade to Plasma 5.
