It's already here, but you must enable the Kubuntu Backports PPA from Kubuntu to get it: Plasma and KDE Applications 4.8.3 Updates

Stable Release Updates


Once an Ubuntu release has been completed and published, updates for it are only released under certain circumstances, and must follow a special procedure called a "stable release update" or SRU.

The Drill

Kubuntu Updates PPA /1/ -> Ubuntu Proposed /2/ -> Ubuntu Updates /3/



There is an automatically generated list of packages which are currently undergoing this process.

Maybe soon ?
