In announcement is totally missing "official" explanation of KDE PIM status, delaying or non-releasing.

Exactly. So, what about KDE PIM?

PIM is scheduled for 4.5.1. At least that was the plan the last time I checked :)

Information about it can be found here:
http://community.kde.org/Promo/Strategy/Akonadi

It was originally in the release announcement when it was being drafted but I'm not quite sure where it disappeared to when it got copy-pasted to the website. Sorry about that.

So no kde 4.5 for me. Gentoo does not include kde 4.5 until kdepim is ready (a good decission if one asks me) xD.

Gentoo KDE Guide:
Note: KDE 4.5.0, the newest KDE release, will not be included in the portage tree, because it lacks the KDEPIM suite. Thus, it will remain in the kde overlay hardmasked. It can be installed with KDEPIM 4.4.5 though, if the user adjusts the keyword files accordingly. The first KDE 4.5.X version that will include the KDEPIM suite will be added to portage as well.

Why can't they just package the KDE 4.4.5 versions of the PIM suite? That is what openSUSE is doing.

Well technically on Gentoo they don't need to do that, because anybody can simply compile the 4.4.5 Kontact Suite against KDELibs 4.5.0 and use KDEPIM as usual (like what I'm doing). It's simply a semantic issue that's holding people back if they use "there's no KDEPIM with Gentoo's 4.5" as an excuse. Another problem is that afaik the maintainers don't think 4.5.0 is stable enough for the main tree, even though it was a major release. Thus it's left to the overlay. Perfectly acceptable justification in my opinion.

(Gentoo maintainer here) In Gentoo the ebuilds are available in kde overlay (unofficial repository). Since there are no releases or binaries, the maintainers can't provide an out of the box 4.5.0 4.4.5 combination, but the user himself has to do it. Everything is documented though, and if anyone wants to update and has problems he can easily reach us
