The forthcoming new release of Plasma 5.13 will have some lovely new features such as rewritten System Settings pages and Plasma Browser Integration. But we need testers.
Incase you missed it the Plasma 5.13 release announce has a rundown of the main features. If you are an auditory learner you can listen to the Late Night Linux Extra podcast where Jonathan “great communicator” Riddell talks about the recent sprint and the release.
You can test it out with the KDE neon Developer Edition Git-Stable ISO which you can download now. Git-stable includes beta builds of KDE’s software. Or you can try the latest KDE neon Docker image which runs the desktop inside Xephyr with a simple command of
neondocker -e dev-stable.
What have the public been saying about Plasma 5.13 beta? Let’s pick some random comments from Reddit:
br_shadow – Plasma is by far the best linux DE
aturfer 26 points – I’m going to make another financial donation to the KDE project.
Good idea aturfer!
