+      <p>The KDE on &os; team focuses on packaging and making sure
+	that the experience of KDE and Qt on &os; is as good as
+	possible.</p>
+
+      <p>The team kept busy during the last quarter of 2015.  Quite
+	a few big updates were committed to the ports tree, and a few more
+	are being worked on in our experimental repository.</p>
+
+      <p>As in previous quarters, we would like to thank several
+	people who have contributed with machines, patches and general
+	help.  Tobias Berner, &a.madpilot; (madpilot_at_), Adriaan de Groot, Ralf
+	Nolden, &a.swills; (swills_at_), and &a.jpaetzel; (jpaetzel_at_) have been
+	essential to our work.</p>
+
+      <p>The following big updates were landed in the ports tree
+	this quarter.  In many cases, we have also contributed patches to
+	the upstream projects.</p>
+
+      <ul>
+	<li>CMake 3.4.0 and 3.4.1</li>
+
+	<li>Calligra 2.9.1, the latest release of the integrated
+	  work applications suite.  Calligra had last been updated in the
+	  ports tree in the end of 2013!</li>
+
+	<li>PyQt4 4.11.4, QScintilla2 2.9.1 and SIP 4.17.</li>
+
+	<li>PyQt5 5.5.1.  Thanks to the work spearheaded by Guido
+	  Falsi and Tobias Berner in the previous quarter, the PyQt5 ports
+	  have finally been committed to the ports tree.  Not only was this
+	  long-awaited on its own, but it also allows other ports to be
+	  updated to their latest versions.</li>
+
+	<li>QtCreator 3.5.1 and 3.6.0.</li>
+
+	<li>A couple of Qt5 packaging bugs were fixed: it should now
+	  be more straightforward to use the Qt5 ports to build software
+	  outside the ports tree, and it is now possible to build ports that
+	  require a C++11 compiler and Qt5 on &os; 9.x.</li>
+      </ul>
+
+      <p>Work on updating the Qt5 ports to their latest version, as
+	well as porting KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma 5 to &os;, is well
+	underway in our experimental area51 repository.  At the moment, it
+	contains Qt5 5.5.1, KDE Frameworks 5.17.0, Plasma 5.5.1 and KDE
+	Applications 15.12.0.</p>
+
+      <p>Users interested in testing those ports are encouraged to
+	follow the instructions in
+	<a href="https://FreeBSD.kde.org/area51.php">our website</a> and
+	report their results to our mailing list.  Qt5 5.5.1 is in our
+	&quot;qt-5.5&quot; branch, and Plasma 5 and the rest is in
+	the &quot;plasma5&quot; branch (which also contains Qt 5.5.1).</p>
