Users on Kubuntu 21.10 "Impish Indri" can add `ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports` and get the latest and greatest Plasma release today.
Read more about Plasma 5.24.0 over at the official #KDE release announcement: https://kde.org/announcements/plasma/5/5.24.0/ but here's one fun highlight that's also a bit of a blast from the past: the Cover Flip animation is an option for task-switching again! 🎉
Is it just me, or does it seem like the release comes earlier every year?
#Plasma 5.22 Beta is available for testers (or just general daredevils) on Kubuntu 21.04 "Hirsute Hippo" and the 21.10 "Impish Indri" development builds.
Rolling out as we speak: #Kubuntu 21.04, codenamed Hirsute Hippo! Based on #Ubuntu but featuring #KDE Plasma 5.21 as the default desktop alongside many other updates at all levels of the wonderful stack that makes up our cool blue flavor.
Aaaand here it is, #Kubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla is out! Plasma 5.19.5 and KDE Applications 20.08 out of the box (so to speak).
#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™.
