Full instructions to upgrade from 14.04 LTS.

Download a Bootable image and put it onto a DVD or USB Drive

Choose Stable Plasma 1 or Work in Progress Plasma 5

Plasma 1 is our recommended stable offering and what you get from the default download, but is now in maintenance mode. It runs the software you are familiar with and will be getting updates and bugfixes but not new features from now on.



Plasma 5 a work in progress. The next generation of KDE Software is still a work in progress. You can install it from the Kubuntu Next PPA but beware it will remove your stable software.

KDE Applications and Platform 4.13.2


The KDE Applications and Platform 4.13.2 includes a bunch of bugfixes.
