KDE Plasma 5.7.1 is Here With Improvements to Program Stability and Much More

Linux sports a variety of desktop environments that users can choose from and one of the most talked about among them is the KDE plasma desktop environment.

Today, the team behind the project has announced the first point release of KDE Plasma 5.7 desktop environment which promises to bring some much-needed improvements and stability to the software.

The new KDE Plasma release will be the most advanced version of the well-knew desktop environment that is featured and used by many GNU/Linux operating systems as their default user interface.

Like almost every software, the programme has its fair share of reported bugs and stability issues including those reported by many users pointing to a faulty code not allowing proper screenshot functionality. The problem was observed in the previous point release of KDE Plasma desktop environment and the development team promises to look into it and fix it as soon as possible.
