KDE Plasma 5.14 Beta release
The first Beta release of the KDE Plasma 5.14 desktop environment was officially released today. The KDE Plasma 5.13 desktop environment branch has reached the end of life, and the team is committed to providing some new features for the 5.14 branch, including the much improved Plasma Discover graphical package manager, access to channels for Snap applications, viewing application package dependencies, and more.
Also, the Plasma 5.14 branch allows users to display and arrange applications based on the release date, notify users when a new version of the package is available, and provide the Flatpak backend to the user when attempting to install the Flatpak application. Also, the Plasma Discover user interface has been dramatically adjusted to improve reliability and stability.
Currently, users can download the Plasma 5.14 Beta version from the official website. The final version will be officially released on October 9, 2018.
