KDE Plasma is a graphical desktop environment with customizable layouts and panels, supporting virtual desktops and widgets. It is available on most Linux distributions and FreeBSD.

KDE Plasma releases roughly three major feature releases a year, with one Long Term Support release every other year. There is a detailed schedule for future bug fix releases and major releases.

Release Cadence

  • Plasma 5.24 (LTS) bug fix support will end once the first Plasma 6.0 feature release comes out.
  • Bugfix tags/releases are made on Tuesdays in a Fibonacci sequence of weeks (1, 1, 2, 3, 5) after each previous release of the same series.

More information is available on the KDE Plasma website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.
