There wasn't a timetable for the last upgrade, which happened in August 2018, iirc
I don't see one mentioned anywhere.
"When it is ready' comes to mind.

i saw in this page's bottom, add topic page to del.icio.us bookmark link. where is del.icio.us site? del.icio.us bookmarking site has already been closed.

i think some important things are not given due attention.

oh my, comparing apples with oranges here, aren't you? The people maintaining the forum are not the same people making Neon, FWIW...


Currently running Kubuntu 20.04, Plasma 5.18.5, Frameworks 5.68.0, Qt 5.12.8, kernel 5.4.0-40
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

KDE Neon delevolpers could make a debian based version as linux mint does with LMDE...ubuntu is taking bad moves, IMHO.

@carlitosh..
I actually agree with you there. LMDE is the only cinnamon version that runs smoothly on my desktop.
The latest Neon on top of a debian base, would be more than welcome.

There are lots of debian based distros that use KDE Plasma DE. I am unclear what you mean about "The latest Neon on top of a debian base". KDE neon is a project to showcase the Plasma desktop and KDE applications on a Ubuntu stable (lts) base that the developers were familiar with.

@kdeoldster.
Some would argue that Neon on a Debian Stable base would be more stable than on top of an Ubuntu base. I was using LMDE as an example. Cinnamon appears to run smoother on Debian than it does on Ubuntu. There are Debian based KDE distros, but none as minimalistic as Neon.

This is an interesting and informative article.
I am however puzzled by this excerpt:

Part of a concerted push to standardise system tray applets Plasma 5.19 boasts a dramatically improved audio widget and a more engaging ‘media playing’ toast.


Does any one know what a "more engaging 'media playing toast'." means?

Best wishes,

It uses Calamares as installer, works perfectly.
