And if I heard it correctly on the grapevine, the reason might be that
KDE does new releases in the middle of the Feora cycle and these
immediately get pulled into released Fedora.
Is this really correct? And if so, could someone enlighten this
relative newcomer (long-term Linux, but not so long Fedora) why this
decision was taken? AS Fedora is not a rolling release, I would kinda
expect new KDE to go into N+1 alpha/beta first?
I'm not sure why you would expect this. Fedora is indeed not a rolling
release, but many parts of it are updated frequently, KDE among them.
The exception is Gnome, which does have a 6-month release cycle,
usually synchronised with Fedora. KDE does not have a 6-month cycle.
