KDE 4.2.

Not sure about that. They have merged the "system timezone database
conversion" code, if that's what you mean. Unfortunately they missed the
recent bug fixes required for that code to handle the upcoming
summer->winter time transition. We really should have been more active
with keeping them informed about Evolution-libical changes. I have
alerted them and the KDE-PIM team of the problem.

However, they haven't included the modified memory handling. Considering
that this breaks the user space API merging it might be a hard sell.
