    And here is a good example why KDE users should not run a non rolling distro.

    These features released as not in for example Kubuntu 20.04 LTS (including some fixes) released yesterday, and will not make it into the stable release until 20.10 (or 22.04 if you stick with LTS), where as Neon has already got the fixes .

      I agree, with KDE software you really want to use the latest released version as they offers many important bug fixes and improvements.

      But what is wrong with Kmail... it is still completely broken on Wayland. Aren't they able to run their software at least one time before they release it?

        maybe the developer(s) of Kmail don't want to use Wayland. It's not uncommon in KDE camp.

          As usual, you can ask in the kde-pim mailing list:
          https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-pim/

          "The [email protected] list is intended for discussing the development of KDE PIM applications, i.e. Kontact, KMail, KOrganizer, KAddressbook, KAlarm, etc."

            Unless you run with the backports enabled. Then you get more of a rolling release experience.

              Nope. You're still stuck with a (very) old Qt.

                LOL, this comment just made my day. backports != rolling, not even semi.

                  In https://kde.org/plasma-desktop anyone can see that the latest Plasma version is 5.18, and in https://launchpad.net/%7Ekubuntu-ppa...=750&start=675 anyone can see that in the backports the Plasma version is 5.18.3

                    Very true... With KDE apps you always feel the need for the newest version. And, even I use a stable distro with regular releases, I still add additional repositories just for KDE...
