The next step is to backport the few bits of new api that went into

This plan seems to be contrary to the KDE Point Release Policy . At
this point I don't see an easy way out, but it would be good if a cutoff
point for these additional API changes in 4.7 could be set (perhaps no
later than 4.7.1's release).
Under some conditions, the policy allows new API in a stable branch.
We decided that these conditions were met :-)
(IIRC there were only three, and they were rather minor and safe; a
KUrl::List constructor, a new exported method, a new signal)
Just to be clear then ... No further API changes are planned for
incorporation in the 4.7 branch? From a distro perspective it matters to me
that the API be stable after our release (which will be with 4.7.1 or 4.7.2
depending on when they are released), so as long as it's those and no others
I'm perfectly happy.
