Spread the Word
Non-technical contributors are an important part of KDE’s success. While proprietary software companies have huge advertising budgets for new software releases, KDE depends on people talking with other people. Even for those who are not software developers, there are many ways to support the KDE Applications 15.12.0 release. Report bugs. Encourage others to join the KDE Community. Or support the nonprofit organization behind the KDE community.
