    First Beta of KDE Framework 5 is released. The final release is planned for June. Plasma Next that is built on QT5 is the first transition of codebase to KDE Framework 5 which will be lot smoother than current plasma and much more neater & attractive.
    Below is few screenshots & link to video, if you want to check it out.

    Is it just me or it seems to be inspired from iOS design? o_O

    So by looking at Calendar widget with translucent blue theme, you think KDE Plasma Next is iOS inspired ?

    KDE have new fonts now called "Oxygen Fonts". Looks nice.
    Just to remind you, KDE Plasma Next Final Release is on 15th of July. If you're too eager to try the beta1 of Plasma Next, here's the Neon ISO available : http://files.kde.org/snapshots/

    Damn, I can't wait for 3 more months :coffee:
