Less easy than I thought: This version requires Upower-0.99, but I see in the upower NEWS file:

Version 0.99.0
Released: 2013-10-29

 - This version contains major API changes. Use the 0.9.* versions if you want
   to keep using the old API.

In the book, Upower is recommended for:

It is optional for:

It is required for:

So I guess I have to check that all those packages work with Upower-0.99 (Or have two versions of UPower in the book).

As far as kdelibs go, it probably won't be an issue because we will be dropping the kde4 dexktop. The only reason to keep kdelibs at all is for some legacy apps that have not yet been ported to kf5. Only the desktop would need upower.

I have not had a chance to check, but I would think that kde-frameworks would handle the newer api.

Took a whole day to figure out... If you install the new Upower, and the new xfce4-power-manager on an existing xfce4 installation, you need to recompile xfce4-session and xfce4-settings too, otherwise you loose the ability to suspend and hibernate.
