Introduction

We are preparing Kubuntu Wily Werewolf (15.10) for distribution on October 22rd, 2015. With this Alpha 1 pre-release, you can see what we are trying out in preparation for our next (stable) version. We have some interesting things happening, so read on for highlights and information.

NOTE:

This is Alpha 1 Release. Kubuntu Alpha Releases are NOT recommended for:

  • Regular users who are not aware of pre-release issues
  • Anyone who needs a stable system
  • Anyone uncomfortable running a possibly frequently broken system
  • Anyone in a production environment with data or workflows that need to be reliable

Kubuntu Alpha Releases are recommended for:

  • Regular users who want to help us test by finding, reporting, and/or fixing bugs
  • Kubuntu, KDE, and Qt developers

Getting Kubuntu 15.10 Alpha 1

Upgrading from 14.10

Download a Disk Image

To upgrade to Kubuntu 15.10 pre-releases from 15.04, run kubuntu-devel-release-upgrade from a command line.
Note that this does not work.
Full instructions to upgrade from 15.04.

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

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

https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.2/full-screen-wee.png

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 37.
