    5.15 is looking to be a real nice release and hopefully it'll be in the Manjaro repos soon.

    Many thanks to everyone involved in the KDE project and Michael for keeping me up-to-date on everything they do.

      I'm looking forward to this update. Looks like Arch already has some of 5.15 in place.

        A word of advice:

        If you are running KDE Neon distro, it appears that there is some conflict with the new packages. I advice you to wait a couple hours to a day to see if they fix it.

        Since is not a security update, you can wait a bit.

          Maybe I should try this out again... KDE Neon is good stuff then?

            Yes, it's already in Testing. Sadly one of the more annoying Wayland related bugs isn't resolved yet https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387313

              When I copy something into clipboard on Wayland, the content is not visible in Klipper and/or fails to be pasted after closing the former program.

                It depends on what you need. It has the latest KDE (and a clean setup at that) and Qt, but it's based on Ubuntu LTS (i.e. lots of old packages). OpenSUSE Tumbleweed or Arch Linux have both the latest KDE and up to date packages for everything else.

                  Rotation using amdgpu still broken here.

                    Yep, exactly. That's the main blocker for me now to switch to Wayland session completely (all that flickering in Kmail is very irritating). Somehow KDE developers are having really hard time with this one.
