KDE Ships Plasma 5.4.2, bugfix Release for October

Today KDE releases a bugfix update to Plasma 5, versioned 5.4.2.
Plasma 5.4 was released in August with many feature refinements and new modules to complete the desktop experience.

This release adds a month's worth of new translations and fixes from KDE's contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important and include:

Source Downloads

You can install Plasma 5 directly from source. KDE's community wiki has instructions to compile it. Note that Plasma 5 does not co-install with Plasma 4, you will need to uninstall older versions or install into a separate prefix.

Feedback

You can give us feedback and get updates on Facebook or Twitter or Google+.

Discuss Plasma 5 on the KDE Forums Plasma 5 board.

You can provide feedback direct to the developers via the #Plasma IRC channel, Plasma-devel mailing list or report issues via bugzilla. If you like what the team is doing, please let them know!

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Comments

Thanks for your work. Would it be possible to port the picture frame plasmoid to Plasma 5? Or has it already been ported?

@Erik: The Picture Frame plasmoid is apparently back in precisely this version... together with RSS Now and Weather. I took a look at the package and it's there... currently I'm still at 5.4.1 and haven't tested or can fully confirm this yet.
