KDE neon Bionic Preview Images Available for Testing

Our QA tests have turned green which means we have switched on the preview publishing for the KDE neon Installable Images based on Bionic.

 Download installable ISO images

A reminder of what the different editions mean:

  • User: Packages continuously built from latest releases.  Use this edition if you are uncertain.
  • Developer Edition Git Stable Branches: Built continuously from Git beta and stable branches.  Use this edition to test beta and forthcoming code which has not gone through QA.
  • Developer Edition Git Unstable Branches: Built continuously from Git unstable branches.  Use this edition to test forthcoming feature code which has not gone through QA.

Remember this is still a preview in testing.  Upgrade testing will be announced shortly and final expected sometime after. Read the release notes. Give us feedback on the KDE forums or by filing specific bugs and keep and eye on the todo board to track us.

    will the lts edition still be supported? or is it recommended for users to migrate to user edition instead?

      It’s there and it’s supported. It’s just not very interesting to use unless you explicitly want to test Plasma LTS. Everything else is updated daily so it’s no more “stable” and just has an older Plasma desktop.

    I was beginning to wonder when the 18.04 packaging would hit. Great work. I know it takes time for this to happen and I’ve been patiently waiting as there are newer packages for some of my favorite applications. I intend to do the upgrade to the 18.04 base as soon as it’s released as stable. Thanks again for the update on availability.

    If i install this preview, do i have to reinstall when the final release comes out or is a smooth transition possible?
