Introductions! Kubuntu disappeared from Mastodon when Mastodon.rocks died. Good to be back. We provide the Plasma environment and KDE sorftware on an Ubuntu base. Friendly software!

One of the things I love about @Kubuntu and @kde in general is the polish. Want to remap Caps Lock to Ctrl? It's right there in Settings -> Keyboard -> Options. No oddball tweaks or other shenanigans required. It's just waiting for you like that super comfy couch you come home to at the end of your day :)

P.S. For anyone curious, looks like Sylvia Ritter already has another of her beautiful release images up already for Hirsute Hippo!

21.04 looms; now is the time for testing! On April 1st, the Beta for Hirsute Hippo will be released, and we'll be participating in as we try and shake out the bugs to leave us with a solid release by the end of the month.

See kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-21-04 for more info on how you can help us (and the wider community) with this testing, or just to take a peek at the near-future :)

Aaaand here it is, 20.10 Groovy Gorilla is out! Plasma 5.19.5 and KDE Applications 20.08 out of the box (so to speak).

The 20.10 release is perilously close! You can help us test (or just peruse the status and find out about some fun other flavours of Ubuntu; did you know there's a Raspberry Pi desktop image now?) over at iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/mi on the Ubuntu QA site.

Nice to see the pre-installed Linux laptop world expanding; admittedly, we're not exactly impartial ;)

For those cautiously sticking to 18.04, our previous Long-Term Support release: 18.04.5 is out now! More a matter of semantics if you've got an existing install, as there's nothing you need to do then other than apply updates as usual, but for fresh installs (although of course we recommend 20.04 for maximum freshness!) you'll now see 18.04.5 images are available to download. kubuntu.org/getkubuntu/

20.04.1 has been released! If you were waiting on the first point release before upgrading to our current Long-Term Support version, now's the time :) Users on 18.04 should see upgrade notifications soon™.

Ubuntu Studio team revealed that 20.04 LTS would be the last version featuring #XFCE desktop. They found themselves using @Kubuntu with Ubuntu Studio added-on via Ubuntu Studio Installer as their daily driver, so why not? invidio.us/watch?v=TAZO3ZgnsDQ @kde #PlasmaDesktop #Linux #Ubuntu20.10

Time marches on; Kubuntu 19.10 has reached the end of its life. Best to upgrade to 20.04 (a Long-Term Support release!) now if you haven't already. If you can't update quite yet, don't worry, it will still be possible even once the packages are archived. See kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-19-10 for more details.

Are you running the development release of Kubuntu Groovy Gorilla 20.10, or wanting to try the daily live ISO?

Plasma 5.19 has now landed in 20.10 and is available for testing!

*Taps mic* Is this thing on? Ah, good. Past time to mention, 20.04 is available! Featuring 5.18, Applications 19.12.3, and other hardy components for our LTS release.
