I want to ask what the strategy is when KDE Plasma 6 is released next year.
Do manjaro make an Update in the stable branch short after the release or do we stay at Plasma 5.27.x for a while till the Version 6 is stable enough for the change?
I remember the drama on the first 5.0x versions and in my opinion we shout stay as long as possible a stable plasma 5.27.x
I don’t care about the year 2023. Sorry I was not clear enouth! Maybe it is 2024, that is not the point.
But how can the users stay at the version 5.27.x when in stable branch the version 6.x is pushed.
I’m not part of the team, but im 99% sure it will be when Arch-Linux puts it in their stable branch, because Manjaro is using their packages as much as possible with small tweaks here and there as needed…
And Arch will only if the programmers of a program decide it is stable enough to call it a stable version
Last time (from 4.x to 5.x) both where available I believe. So they might do the same this time, so Plasma 5.27.X will be based on KF5 (which will likely not get feature updates) and Plasma 6.X will be based on KF6 packages. So the KF5 ones will likely get a package name change, like kwin-qt5.
