KaOS Linux team announced the latest version of their operating system ‘KaOS 2018.01’, which focus on KDE software, number of packages updated, features the latest Plasma desktop: “It is with great pleasure to present to you a first KaOS ISO for 2018. The policy is, once a first pacman -Syu becomes a major update, it is time for a new ISO so new users are not faced with a difficult first update. With the exceptional large amounts of updates the last six weeks most systems will see 70-80% of their install replaced by new packages so a new ISO is more than due. All currently available patches and fixes for the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities in modern processors are included. The Linux 4.14.14 kernel is built with Retpoline enabled, latest AMD aand Intel ucodes are also built into this kernel. As always with this rolling distribution, you will find the very latest packages for the Plasma Desktop, this includes Frameworks 5.42.0, Plasma 5.11.5, KDE Applications 17.12.1. All built on Qt 5.10.0. It has been a few years, but KGet is finally ported to kf5, thus available again in the KaOS repositories. It replaces the now obsolete Fatrat as the default Download Manager for KaOS…” You can read complete release announcement here.
