    5.17 looks like it's shaping up nicely.

    Also, f**k cancer.

      What's the story with Debian unstable / testing? Plasma is getting very outdated there.

        I case you remember me mentioning some weird slowdowns of Plasma/KDE I was having: Looks like it was related to Thunar's dbus-1 services (/usr/share/dbus-1/services/).
        Since I deleted them, Dolphin always starts quickly, no more random file browsing slowness etc.

          Well, I'm satisfied! The stable release should arrive on October 15, after a week it will presumably be on my fantastic Tumbleweed. Usually Plasma passes openSUSE openQA tests quickly.

            I've happily passed to Trinity (former Kde3) just a few days ago. I don't need plasma, blood, gtk3-4-5-6-... and whatever you want.
            It has all what I want without selling my blood. Sometimes they return!
            (For those curious it has also networkmanager and pulseadio support).

              I guess you don't need actual security updates, stability, or anything else either then.

                When will Wayland run on Plasma with Nvidia? They said they were working on it and was kinda done, no news?

                  Doesn't that happen every time a new version of Debian is released - testing is frozen and things get backed up for awhile? I'm assuming we are just in that phase with the Buster roll out right now.

                    Anyone who misses the look and feel of KDE 3.5, do yourself a favor and try out the Trinity Desktop Environment. I'm really enjoying my time with it recently. It's missing some of the modern aspects of window management, like dragging windows to the left or right screen border to fill half the screen. But for my eyes it's a better looking DE than what is generally available.
