For those cautiously sticking to #Kubuntu 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. https://kubuntu.org/getkubuntu/
#Kubuntu 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? https://www.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 https://kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-19-10-eoan-ermine-reaches-end-of-life/ for more details.
