Fedora now features KDE 4, and no longer offers KDE 3 as a full desktop environment.  Fedora does provide the following KDE 3.5 library packages to run and build the many existing KDE 3 applications:
 
* <code>qt3</code>, <code>qt3-devel</code> (and other <code>qt3-*</code> packages): Qt 3.3.8b
 
* <code>qt3</code>, <code>qt3-devel</code> (and other <code>qt3-*</code> packages): Qt 3.3.8b
 
* <code>kdelibs3</code>, <code>kdelibs3-devel</code>: KDE 3 libraries
 
* <code>kdelibs3</code>, <code>kdelibs3-devel</code>: KDE 3 libraries
 
* <code>kdebase3</code>, <code>kdebase3-pim-ioslaves</code>, <code>kdebase3-devel</code>: KDE 3 core files required by some applications
 
* <code>kdebase3</code>, <code>kdebase3-pim-ioslaves</code>, <code>kdebase3-devel</code>: KDE 3 core files required by some applications
In addition, Fedora offers a <code>kdegames3</code> package which includes games not ported to KDE 4 yet, and a KDE 3 version of <code>libkdegames</code> required by some third-party KDE 3 games.
 
  
 
Moreover, the KDE 4 <code>kdebase-runtime</code> package, which provides <code>khelpcenter</code>, also sets up <code>khelpcenter</code> as a service for KDE 3 applications, so help in KDE 3 applications works.  The KDE 3 version of <code>khelpcenter</code> is no longer provided, and the KDE 4 version is used instead.
