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 fifth set of updates to Plasma 5 (current release and current bugfixes for January) is the default in this version of Kubuntu.
KDE Applications 15.08
Kubuntu comes with KDE Applications 15.08 containing all your favorite apps from KDE, including Dolphin. This is the first stability update, and contains bugfixes and translation updates. 107 applications have been ported to KDE Frameworks 5 but those which aren't should fit in seamlessly.
