The KDE community has banded together to release the Plasma 5.6 beta today.

KDE Plasma 5.6 is bringing improvements to the default Breeze theme as well as to the light and dark versions, task manager improvements, smoother widgets, a weather widget has finally returned to Plasma 5, and plenty of Wayland improvements. Plasma 5.6 has also been prepping Plymouth boot screen and GRUB boot-loader screens designed around the Breeze theme in aiming to complete the KDE computing experience.

More details on today's KDE Plasma 5.6 beta can be found via dot.kde.org. KDE Plasma 5.6.0 will be officially released later this month on 22 March.
