I would ask that question on the dev list. They understand the
situation better than most posters here. You might even want to ask at
linuxquestion.org or unix.org.

Pay careful attention to Akonadi, as that has caused me several
(potential, caught in personal testing) dataloss issues. For
production use, I recommend disabling the Akonadi resources for the
time being. Also, panel and desktop settings were often lost KDE 4.1
-> KDE 4.2 during the alpha and maybe even beta stages.
