I found a lot of usefull infos for the update in this blog post, thanks a lot Jeremy
http://jpwhiting.blogspot.de/2014/11/autostart-in-plasma-5.html

Some questions:

1)
.config/plaswa-workspace/env -> pre kde startup (immediately after login)
.config/plaswa-workspace/shutdown -> shutdown
.config/autostart/ startup only for programs (Desktop files)
using/launching scripts after kde startup is not possible?
how to enable/disable a script? not possible afaik
Is this correct?
How to deal with the issue that it is no longer possible to launch a script at startup?
Any fix in sight or should I add a note about that missing feature to the docbook?

2)
migration from kde4:
Copy Desktop files from $HOME/.kde/Autostart to $HOME/.config/autostart/
Copy Script files to from $HOME/.kde/Autostart to
$HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/env (pre kde startup)
or $HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/shutdown (shutdown scripts)
Should I add a note about migration from kde4 to the docbook?

3)
Use Plasma instead of &kde;?
GUI catalog kcm_autostart still has several messages with KDE:
"Autostart only in KDE" "KDE Autostart Manager" "KDE Autostart Manager Control Panel Module" "Pre-KDE startup"
I'd prefer to use Plasma instead of &kde; in the docbook, but then the GUI has to be changed as well

4)
Disabling Autostart Files Provided By Your Distribution -> http://www.sharpley.org.uk/node/8
Add a note about this to the docbook?

5)
KDE Applications handling autostart on their own e.g.
KAlarm enable/disable autostart in settings dialog
Konversation/Kopete in systemtray, you have to use File->Quit to prevent autostart on next login
Add a note about this to the docbook?

6)
Background Services - Startup Services:
This shows all KDE services that can be loaded on KDE startup. Checked services will be invoked on next startup.
Add a note about this or link to the relevant kcm docbook?

7)
Desktop Session - another way to autostart applications
Add a note about this or link to the relevant kcm docbook?
