After upgrading to the above, I find that some plasmoids are missing: RSS Now, Dictionary, Calculator (of the ones I use). The most important one for me is RSS Now, indeed there is no RSS plasmoid at all offered anymore. Downloading new plasmoids doesn’t offer anything, and I can’t find it on kde-looks either. Has anyone else noticed this, and any ideas as to how I can get RSS Now and the other back?

They are all in the package “plasma-addons”.
You’re an enemy of progress
Indeed they are, thanks! For some reason installation of plasma-addons involved downgrade of akonadi but then I’ve never really understood what akonadi is for anyway…

actually, really laughing out loud…still…very funny, thanks!!
(laughter is good for the soul…and, i don’t get enough good lately)
For PIM and some “thrilling new features” so it’s very important if You’re using Kmail. For me it’s useless as far as I know
KDE PIM/Akonadi - KDE Community Wiki
Yes, I know that much about akonadi but I don’t use Kmail and use Recoll for desktop indexing/search. Much as I like KDE4 as my preferred DE, I’ve always found the entire KDEPIM/Kmail/Akonadi/Strigi complex baffling, overhyped, and useless.
