The beta for the upcoming Plasma 5.2 desktop shell is being tagged on Thursday.

Plasma 5.2 Beta is being tagged on Thursday so this is the last chance for merging any features or artwork ahead of this quarterly update to Plasma 5. As long as the tagging is done on Thursday, KDE Plasma 5.2 Beta (v5.195) should be officially released on 13 January. The plan is to then tag the official 5.2.0 release on 22 January and to officially release Plasma 5.2 on 27 January, per the Plasma 5 schedule.

Among the changes for Plasma 5.2 are a KWayland server component, an SDDM configuration model, support for undoing Plasmoid actions, and various other changes. Embedded below is a video by Marco Martin showing off the undo support for Plasma 5.2 for recovering deleted Plasmoids.
