Today, October 18, 2016, the KDE project proudly announced the general availability of the second bugfix release for the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment, version 5.8.2.

KDE Plasma 5.8.2 LTS is here to bring a week's worth of improvements and bug fixes submitted by various KDE contributors and developers for the long-term supported KDE Plasma 5.8 desktop environment, keeping it stable and reliable. This second point release arrives only a week after KDE Plasma 5.8.1 LTS' announcement on October 11, 2016.

Among the components that received improvements in the KDE Plasma 5.8.2 LTS update, we can mention KScreen, KWin, Plasma Desktop, Plasma Workspace, Plasma Networkmanager (plasma-nm), and kactivitymanagerd. The full changelog is attached at the end of the article for more details.

"Today KDE releases a Bugfix update to KDE Plasma 5, versioned 5.8.2. Plasma 5.8 was released in October with many feature refinements and new modules to complete the desktop experience," reads the announcement . "This release adds a week's worth of new translations and fixes from KDE's contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important."

KDE Plasma 5.8.3 LTS coming November 1, 2016

If you're using a GNU/linux operating system running the latest KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS or KDE Plasma 5.8.1 LTS desktop environment, we recommend that you update to KDE Plasma 5.8.2 LTS as soon as the new version hits the stable repositories of your distribution, which should happen very soon for those who use the popular Arch Linux OS.

As you might know, KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS is a long-term supported release, which will get maintenance update until April 2018. However, in 2016, three more point releases are planned, KDE Plasma 5.8.3 LTS for November 1, KDE Plasma 5.8.4 LTS for November 22, and KDE Plasma 5.8.5 LTS for December 27. After that, development will start on the KDE Plasma 5.9 desktop environment.
