KDE Frameworks 5 will use the qt5.git dev branch until that has the features 
it needs. KDE won't release plasma+frameworks5 on top of Qt 5.1 because it 
doesn't have the required features. 

Whether Qt 5.2 will have all required features remains to be seen. The todo 
list is long: http://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Epics/Qt_5.1_Merging and 
even that list is only 'things needed in Qt before a release can be made'. The 
list of 'things to do in the KDE libraries before we can release' is also a 
long one.

So, don't worry about release-timing relating to this issue. Whenever this 
feature reaches the qt5.git dev branch, the plasma developers can start using 
it in parallel development.

Those problems were solved already, right?
