This announcement is also available in Spanish and Taiwanese Mandarin.
It's only been days since our latest release Goedel 2017.03 was announced, but KDE software updates fully roll in Chakra and we could not delay this any further. As always, simply upgrading your system after installation will provide you with the latest available software in our repositories.
The most recent updates for KDE's Plasma, Applications and Frameworks series are now available to all Chakra users. All of these have been built against an important update of Qt to version 5.8.0.
The Calligra suite has also been updated to 184.108.40.206, so it is now fully ported to Frameworks 5 and will be provided as a single package. However this means that applications like author, braindump, flow and stage are no longer actively maintained and are dropped from our repositories.
Plasma 5.9.3 provides another round of bugfixes and translation updates to the 5.9 release, with changes found mostly in kwin, plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace.
Applications 16.12.3 ship with more than 20 recorded bugfixes and include improvements to kdepim, ark, filelight, gwenview, kate, kdenlive and okular. kdelibs have also been updated to 4.14.30.
Frameworks 5.32.0 provide the usual bugfixes and improvements to breeze-icons, kio, ktexteditor, plasma-framework and syntax-highlighting, among other packages.
Other notable package upgrades and changes:
skypeforlinux 220.127.116.11: We now ship the bundled web application which unfortunately misses some features and lacks in system integration, but at least it works.
It should be safe to answer yes to any replacement question by Pacman. If in doubt or if you face another issue in relation to this update, please ask or report it on the related forum section.
Most of our mirrors take 12-24h to synchronize, after which it should be safe to upgrade. To be sure, please use the mirror status page to check that your mirror synchronized with our main server after this announcement.
