While Jonathan Riddell stepped down as the Kubuntu release manager immediately following the Kubuntu 15.10 release and Kubuntu's post-15.10 future was portrayed as uncertain, the developers still with the project are focusing on making a great 16.04 "Xenial Xerus" release.

Yesterday at the Ubuntu Online Summit was a long session about Kubuntu planning for 16.04. The Kubuntu developers working toward the KDE-flavor of Xenial Xerus were figuring out build server changes, possible fundraising work to help Kubuntu developers, improvements to documentation, look towards KDE Plasma 5.5 integration, improve the bug triaging process, and making other enhancements. Plasma 5.5 is set to be officially released in December.

Kubuntu stakeholders can learn more via the UOS notes or the session video embedded below.
