KaOS Linux has simply acquired one other substantial secure replace, two months after the earlier launch labeled as model 2020.05.
Needless to say, this new replace brings KaOS Linux to model 2020.07, and the principle spotlight this time is the introduction of Plasma 5.19.
So the Linux distro is getting all of the goodies which can be a part of this Plasma replace too, together with refinements to the system tray applets, notifications, and system monitor widgets.
Very necessary to know is that this new replace for KaOS additionally consists of firmware revisions which can be out there within the pre-loaded repositories. The dev staff explains the next:
“A few new firmwares/modules have been added to the repositories, this include sof-firmware (needed for newer sound-cards, will move to linux-firmware soon according to upstream reports) and two new rtl wifi modules (rtl8723de & rtl8821ce). New applications added include Photoflare, the musicplayer VVave (the successor of Babe) and Kdiff3.”
Two recognized points
The 2020 major model of KaOS additionally comes with additional sprucing for the Midna theme, with a brand new customized Midna Kvantum theme now out there as effectively.
One of the primary issues folks will discover in KaOS 2020.07 is the tweaked installer and welcome display, as the discharge notes reveal.
“For the installer Calamares, KaOS has started a move to using as many QML modules as possible. For the Welcome screen that means any text or needed info can now be shown as a qml file within the Calamares window, no need for pop-ups or external applications,” the dev staff explains in a blog post.
Worth conserving in thoughts, nonetheless, is that KaOS 2020.07 ships with two recognized points. One of them prevents the Linux distro from putting in on RAID, whereas the second causes a kernel bug on particular Intel CPU methods. The latter could be mounted by manually enhancing the kernel boot line and including the random.trust_cpu=1 instruction.
