KDE/Plasma and Cinnamon updates in Debian
It is the time of the year when we all are searching for some peaceful time, but the pre-release freeze of Bullseye is putting a higher burden than usual on us 😉 So here we go, two desktop environments got updates in Debian/experimental. A few days ago I have updated all the Cinnamon related packages to the latest release 4.8, and yesterday I have uploaded KDE/Plasma packages of 5.20.4. This brings my two favorite desktop environments up to upstream release in Debian.
My plans for both are uploads as soon as possible to unstable, so that they can transition to Debian/testing and will be included in the next release of Bullseye.
You can help now by installing your preferred desktop environment (Cinnamon or KDE/Plasma) from experimental and report bugs to the BTS, so that we can iron out some more bugs before pushing it out. If you are not sure, feel free to contact the respective maintainer email lists (debian-cinnamon and debian-kde) with questions/reports/suggestions.
Thanks everyone, and let us hope for a great Bullseye release!
