When reporting issues against the workspace (Plasma 5) bear in mind that at the moment most of the KDE Applications have not yet been fully ported to the new Frameworks. Therefore, some commonly-used parts of the normal workspace usage are not yet available. For those, some distributions still offer git snapshots for users to test.
In this case, do not file bugs on bugs.kde.org yet unless the developers are ready to accept them. Focus on KF5 porting is expected to come after the 4.14 release.
When finding problems, refer to the General Troubleshooting guidelines. Always post your issues here before reporting a bug on KDE's bug tracker.
If all else fails and you need to report a bug on http://bugs.kde.org, please bear in mind the following:
Plasma 5 has a three-month release cycle. Therefore, in order to identify better if an issue is already fixed or not, always state your Plasma 5 version, or git snapshot if you follow the development directly.
For the first Plasma Next release, the widgets and other components of Plasma Addons (repository "kdeplasma-addons") will not be released: the developers are focusing on improving and polishing the core Plasma components first. As such, please don't file bugs against these components, as it's known that they have lots of issues and it's too soon to test them out. More work will be done for the subsequent Plasma Next releases.
