The Kubuntu Team is happy to announce that Kubuntu 20.04.1 LTS “point release” is available today, featuring the beautiful KDE Plasma 5.18 LTS: simple by default, powerful when needed.
As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Kubuntu 20.04 LTS.
More details can be found in the release notes: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FocalFossa/ReleaseNotes/Kubuntu
