KDE applications are built to integrate well with your system's components.
We recommend to use sys-kernel/gentoo-sources instead. Userspace hardening and support for SELinux will of course remain in the Gentoo ebuild repository.
Please see the full news item for additional information and links.
KDE Workspaces 4.11 will remain in the tree for a reasonable time, but be warned that it is unmaintained and may cause conflicts with newer versions of KDE Applications.

A detailed upgrade guide is available, but in most cases it is enough to switch to the new desktop/plasma profile, update @world, and emerge kde-plasma/plasma-meta: # eselect profile list # eselect profile set # emerge --ask --changed-use --newrepo --deep world # emerge --ask --verbose kde-plasma/plasma-meta If you normally use KDM to launch Plasma, note that it is no longer supported.
Upcoming weekend, 19-20th August 2017, there will be a Gentoo booth again at the Fr OSCon “Free and Open Source Conference” 12, in St. Visitors can see Gentoo live in action, get Gentoo swag, and prepare, configure, and compile their own Gentoo buttons.
