Plasma 5.23 Anniversary Edition Beta for Debian available for testing
Last week has seen the release of the first beta of Plasma 5.23 Anniversary Edition. Work behind the scenes to get this release as soon as possible into Debian has progressed well.
Starting with today, we provide binaries of Plasma 5.23 for Debian stable (bullseye), testing, and unstable, in each case for three architectures: amd64, i386, and aarch64.
To test the current beta, please add
deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/npreining:/debian-kde:/plasma523/DISTRIBUTION/ ./
to your apt sources (replacing
DISTRIBUTION with one of
Debian_11 (for Bullseye),
Debian_Unstable). For further details see this blog.
This is a beta release, and let me recall the warning from the upstream release announcement:
DISCLAIMER: This is beta software and is released for testing purposes. You are advised to NOT use Plasma 25th Anniversary Edition Beta in a production environment or as your daily desktop. If you do install Plasma 25th Anniversary Edition Beta, you must be prepared to encounter (and report to the creators) bugs that may interfere with your day-to-day use of your computer.
Enjoy, and please report bugs!
