Getting exciting now! We're closing in on the final release of KDE Plasma 6.0 with a second Beta now available for testing to ensure it's ready for your Linux desktops and eventually Steam Deck too.
Coming nearly a month after the first Beta, the KDE team have been powering through lots of bug reports to get it ready for release but naturally since it's still in Beta it's not quite ready yet but they could use some more testers to jump in and report across a wide variety of hardware.
"As with versions Alpha and the first Beta, this is a preview intended for developers and testers. The software in this second beta release is reaching stability fast, but it is still not 100% safe to use in a production environment. We still recommend you continue using stable versions of Plasma, Frameworks and apps for your everyday work. But if you do use this, watch out for bugs and report them promptly, so we can solve them." — KDE Plasma Team.
A reminder on the rest of the roadmap:
- 10 January 2024: Release Candidate 1
- 31 January 2024: Release Candidate 2
- 21 February 2024: Private Tarball Release
