KDE Ships Beta of KDE Applications 16.04
March 24, 2016. Today KDE released the beta of the new versions of KDE Applications. With dependency and feature freezes in place, the KDE team's focus is now on fixing bugs and further polishing.
Check the community release notes for information on new tarballs, tarballs that are now KF5 based and known issues. A more complete announcement will be available for the final release
With the various applications being based on KDE Frameworks 5, the KDE Applications 16.04 releases need a thorough testing in order to maintain and improve the quality and user experience. Actual users are critical to maintaining high KDE quality, because developers simply cannot test every possible configuration. We're counting on you to help find bugs early so they can be squashed before the final release. Please consider joining the team by installing the beta and reporting any bugs.
Installing KDE Applications 16.04 Beta Binary Packages
Packages. Some Linux/UNIX OS vendors have kindly provided binary packages of KDE Applications 16.04 Beta (internally 16.03.80) for some versions of their distribution, and in other cases community volunteers have done so. Additional binary packages, as well as updates to the packages now available, may become available over the coming weeks.
