Why is that a question
Linux Mint 14 KDE RC was released within one month after Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon/MATE RC. I think you can expect roughly the same; so KDE RC somewhere next month.

When will it be released? I can't wait!
KDE 4.11 Will Be The Last Major KDE4 Workspaces Feature Release
Posted by Michael Larabel on May 23, 2013
For those that didn't hear already, KDE 4.11 will be the last Plasma Workspaces feature release in the KDE4 series and this upcoming version will be maintained for a period of two years.
Once KDE 4.11 is out the door, KDE developers can begin focusing much more of their efforts on KDE Frameworks 5, Qt 5, and KDE Plasma Workspaces 2. For KDE 4.11, the developers will just provide bug-fixes, translation updates, and other point release material for a period of two years atop the current generation KDE Plasma Workspaces.
This decision is primarily about the Plasma Workspaces but there could be further KDE 4.x releases with improvements to applications and other libraries. By having the major kde-workspace code-base going into maintenance mode for KDE4, the wait to KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma Workspaces 2 should ultimately be shorter.
For more information on this decision, read Aaron Siego's blog post. There's also details on KDE 4.11 features.

I know there is pressure to push the release out now that Kubuntu, Mageia and Open Suse have laid their golden KDE eggs, but I hope that Linux Mint 15 KDE works on incorporating KDE 4.10.3 rather than the older version. Kubuntu 13.04 already has 4.10.3 out. it was released just a few days ago and resolved some problems. I think that it may be worth delaying release in order to get the bug fixes of .3 included. I also hope the kernel and alsa-lib will be up to date with the latest bug fixes.

A pity that you continue to give such little importance to KDE desktop when is the best out there at the moment. One must understand that the Linux Mint team gives more importance to Cinnamon and Mate. A shame !!!! Greetings.
Jose Manuel wrote:Mate and Cinnamon are very good. But, in my modest opinion, there is no doubt that KDE is the best desktop today. Well, we continue to expect for Linux Mint 15 KDE. The Versions of Linux Mint with KDE Desktop are all excellent (except for Linux Mint 12 KDE). Worth waiting ............
