OpenSUSE Is Making It Easier To Try Out The Latest KDE Stack
Written by Michael Larabel in SUSE on 19 February 2016 at 07:13 AM EST. 18 Comments
While KDE Neon was recently announced as an effort providing bleeding-edge KDE packages for Ubuntu, openSUSE developers have launched Krypton and Argon as their own similar initiatives.

OpenSUSE's Argon is about providing the very latest KDE Git builds atop an openSUSE Leap base. The OpenSUSE Krypton build is about a live, installable image based on openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Argon and Krypton make it easy to try out the bleeding-edge KDE packages straight from their upstream repositories, regardless of whether you are using the stable 42.1 Leap release or using the Tumbleweed rolling-release distribution.

More details on pulling down the latest KDE Git packages for openSUSE can be found via this announcement.
