Hi, the porting progress of KDE Applications is currently working quite nicely 
IMO. An overview on what currently is already ported is e.g. here:


Yet some important applications (e.g. the whole of PIM, Okular, Calligra...) 
have not seen any Qt5/KF5 based release yet. Trying to not make too bold 
statements, my gut feeling is that the KDE Applications release after 15.08 
(probably around X-Mas) should provide ports for "most" of the applications, 
making early 2016 sound a feasible date. If you add 4 more months for another 
Applications release cycle for safety, there should have been two Qt5/KF5 
based release cycles for most applications at spring 2016.

Talking about the Workspace, it is already quite usable IMO (whereas I am 
running master branches).
