Chakra GNU/Linux maintainer Neofytos Kolokotronis informed the community about the availability of the latest KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment and software applications in the main repositories of the distribution.
In addition to the KDE Plasma 5.7.3 desktop environment, Chakra GNU/Linux users can now install some of the latest open-source applications, among which we can mention the Oracle VirtualBox 5.1.2 virtualization software, SQLite 3.13.0 SQL database engine, LibreOffice 5.1.5 office suite, Mozilla Firefox 48.0 web browser, and Wine 1.9.16.
The Chakra GNU/Linux repos now include the Nvidia 367.27 video driver. Support for GTK+ applications has been improved as well thanks to the implementation of the GTK+ 3.20.6 GUI toolkit, and laptop-mode-tools 1.69.2 is here to enhance laptop support in Chakra.
