Hi everyone, I'm pleased to announce another update to the GeckoLinux Plasma NEXT edition. The purpose of this edition is not to replace the regular GeckoLinux Static Plasma release, but rather as an alternative for those who want the latest Plasma stable release on top of a stable openSUSE Leap base. This is achieved thanks to some additional OBS repositories together with the polished GeckoLinux configuration for the Plasma desktop. Like all GeckoLinux editions, Plasma NEXT can be smoothly updated from the official repositories of openSUSE and Packman as new package versions become available. In the case of the Plasma NEXT edition, the next major release of Plasma 5 will also be available from the official KDE repositories in the openSUSE Build Service whenever it is released at a future date.

What's new: The major objective of this release is to ship the latest version of the Calamares installer and its dependent libraries. This will hopefully resolve the issues that some users have experienced with EFI installations and/or LUKS volumes. Additional bug fixes from the upstream openSUSE and Packman repositories have also been included. Also the KDE Applications repository has a new URL, now included by default. Other Plasma and KDE package version updates come from the included OBS repos for KDE.
