This time we have been a bit late, as many of our contributors were busy over the last couple of months, but we hope we can soon get back to normal delivery times.
Better late than never though, so we are happy to inform you that on your next system upgrade you will receive newer versions of KDE’s Plasma, Applications and Frameworks, in addition to updates to important packages such as the linux kernel and systemd. The latest Plasma 5.14 series should follow soon.
Please have in mind that we have removed the nvidia-304xx package from Chakra’s repositories because it is no longer compatible with new kernel releases. If you are using nvidia-304xx on your system, you should either install and use the linux-lts kernel and the corresponding nvidia-304xx-lts package, or switch to the free nouveau driver.
For more details and the full changelogs on KDE’s software releases, you can read the official announcements:
Noteworthy package updates include:
- curl 7.61.1
- gcc 8.2.0
