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.
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 :)
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 #UbuntuTestingWeek as we try and shake out the bugs to leave us with a solid release by the end of the month.
See https://kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-21-04-testing-week/ for more info on how you can help us (and the wider #Ubuntu community) with this testing, or just to take a peek at the near-future :)
Good Morning! Visit KDE’s booth in 15 minutes to learn more about KDE’s Plasma Mobile with Bhushan Shah.
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).
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 http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/418/builds on the Ubuntu QA site.
KDE is 24 years old today! Share in the comments your favorite KDE memory, ye olde screenshots, photos from events, tell us about antique merch you have collected over time, or about anything else from your ❤️ story with KDE.
Find out more about the history of KDE, where we came from and where we are headed:

Nice to see the pre-installed Linux laptop world expanding; admittedly, we're not exactly impartial ;)
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.
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!
Anyone have strong opinions, or good suggestions, on CI systems? Do let us know! https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-devel/2020-May/011840.html
Please help us and all of the flavors make this a fantastic release! #UbuntuTestingWeek
All the Ubuntu flavors need your help during #UbuntuTestingWeek to make the 20.04 LTS as stable and great as it should be. #XubuntuQA #XubuntuLTS
