v3.5.13 (and specifically 3.5.13-SRU) were the last versions of KDE 3.5.10
updated to work on top of TQT-Interface before the mass renaming and
rebranding efforts took place in late 2012-2013 timeframe.

(Darrel, I, Slavek, and Tim to a lesser extent were involved with the
rebranding, graphics changes, etc.., Darrel did the lions share of
reorganizing and rebranding the TDE help system and Slavek implemented most of
the k->t name changes -- though if I recall correctly he was also mired in
completing to move to CMake at the time)

Functionally, v3.5.13 will likely lack a number of the improvements in the
current version (for a while significant improvements were "cherry-picked" and
backported to v3.5.13, but I don't know if that has been done in years) You
will not be able to mix/match any of the current version TDE components with
v3.5.13 components because of the internal k->t renaming that took place.

Unless there have been other changes to v3.5.13 since 2014, that, in a
nutshell, is the difference.
