The KDE Neon development team announced the release of the KDE Neon 5.8 User Edition GNU/Linux distribution with the recently released KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment.
If you’re using the KDE Neon operating system on your personal computer, you need to update your installation to receive the new KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS packages and enjoy a better, more stable and more reliable KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment that will get extended, long-term support until April 2018.
There are many cool new features shipping with the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment, which is a recommended upgrade for anyone using KDE Plasma 5.7 or a previous release. Also, for the first time in the history of KDE Plasma 5, the development team recommends it for everyday use to all Linux users.
