Designed to be a Breeze, Plasma 5 is now the default


Plasma 5, the next generation of KDE's desktop has been rewritten to make it smoother to use while retaining the familiar setup. The third set of updates to Plasma 5 is the default in this version of Kubuntu.

KDE Applications 15.04


Kubuntu comes with KDE Applications 15.04 containing all your favourite apps from KDE. This is the 15.04.1 update with bugfixes and translation updates. Several applications have been ported to KDE Frameworks 5 but those which aren't should fit in seamlessly.

Non-KDE applications include LibreOffice 4.4 and Firefox 38.
