Here comes our first release-candidate for Manjaro-KDE 19.0.1 Kyria.
The most obvious addition for the 19.0 series are @bogdancovaciu's new Breath2 themes, including
- plasma5-themes (complete with dark themes and custom analog clock)
- splash animation
- sddm-theme and
Additionally we have added matching skins for Yakuake, color schemes for Konsole thanks to @antikythera, and also editor Kate received some additional colour schemas.
As an alternative to the traditional 'Kickoff' Application Launcher we now also provide Plasma-Simplemenu pre-installed and ready to use.
The default kernel is latest LTS Linux54.
Recent changes since original 19.0 release:
- updated ALSA to 1.2.2
- renewed the toolchain including binutils, gcc and glibc
- Bluez got updated to 5.5.3
- Wayland is now at 1.18.0
- NetworkManager is at 1.22.8
- We updated the Kernel to 5.4.22
Thank you as always for your continued valuable feedback.
With these latest release-candidates it will be particularly helpful to collect information about your experience with real hardware installation, including all sorts of encryption and partitioning variations. So if you have that extra piece of hardware sitting in a corner ... please don't hesitate to experiment and try to break stuff as badly as you can!
To adopt the new default look on existing installs please replace manjaro-kde-settings with manjaro-kde-settings-19.0 and after re-logging switch to global theme breath2 in Plasma System Settings.
