With my KDE hat on: "when" has not been decided yet; ideally, there
would be some sort of technical preview of KDE Frameworks (ie. kdelibs
split into smaller, more independent modules) around Akademy, but that
really depends on the number of people working on it. A final first
release is even farther, as it involves Qt5 being released and
Frameworks looking good. More information can be obtained via [1].

After that the applications themselves need to be ported to Qt5 and KDE
