Yes, you need to export them as either vCard, or a Comma Separated list ( CSV ). KMail/Kontact can import these easily, and I think Outlook can export in these formats. KMail/Kontact also support MS Exchange Personal Address Book format ( PAB ) as well.

Click on Contacts and select the menu entry File->Import->Import vCard... or
File->Import->Import CSV List... etc.

3.4 is in Alpha, and is closing in on Beta, Its working quite well. Some annoyances ( Delete option moving ) and occasional bugs, but its pretty stable already, some fine new stuff and abilities. Release is set for March 16th
