KDE Plasma 5.0.1 First Bugfix Released

KDE had just recently released its first bugfix update to Plasma 5 which is KDE Plasma 5.0.1. Plasma 5 was released a month ago with many feature refinements and streamlining the existing codebase of KDE’s popular desktop for developers to work on for the years to come.


This latest release, versioned 5.0.1, adds a month’s worth of new translations and fixes from KDE’s contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important such as fixing text which couldn’t be translated, using the correct icons and fixing overlapping files with KDELibs 4 software.

For those who are keen to test run this update, I have already written a post on how to install kde plasma 5.0 on Ubuntu 14.04. Following the instructions there as the the PPA had been updated to the latest release.

Alternatively, the easiest way to try it out is with a live image booted off a USB disk. Images are available for development versions of Kubuntu Plasma 5. Simply click the button below to download it.
