As we all know, Kubuntu is one of the most used official flavors of Ubuntu due to the great news it always presents and the great ease of customization of the KDE desktop. A couple of days ago we told you about Jonathan Ridell’s withdrawal from Kubuntu, but it’s not all bad news.
First of all, the best news is that rumors about the uncertain future of Kubuntu as an official flavor, Seem to have disappeared, Since since the release of the first beta of Kubuntu 15.10 nothing has been officially commented on it. The truth is that it would be a shame for Kubuntu to stop being an official taste, especially seeing the news presented by the new release of Kubuntu 15.10 Wily Warewolf.
And is that Kubntu 15.10 comes with KDE Plasma 5.4.2. If you want, you can read all its news in yours official announcement. But even so, in Ubunlog we will give you a short summary.
In it announcement, we can see that they tell us about many developments. Among others we can see how they emphasize the desktop polishing, Which has been rewritten to make it lighter now while maintaining the usual settings.
Also, we see that Kubuntu 15.10 will come with KDE Applications 15.08, Which contains all common KDE applications, As the Dolphin file manager. This is the first stable update, And contains corrections of bugs and translation updates. We can also see that they also mention us a list about the errors that are currently known.
If you want, you can take a look at the video that summarizes the content of this post and appreciate all the advantages we have talked about and many more:
The news we see in this new Kubuntu 15.10 is very interesting and the truth is that, as we said, it would be a shame for Kubuntu to cease to be official taste. We hope that the developers of Kubuntu and the Ubuntu Community Council have come to a conclusion and hopefully this will be the permanence of Kubuntu as an official flavor.
