Latte Dock v0.7.2 arrives in KDE and Kubuntu backports PPA

Latte Dock, the very popular doc/panel app for Plasma Desktop, has released its new bugfix version 0.7.2. This is also the first stable release since Latte Dock became an official KDE project at the end of August.



Version 0.7.1 was added to our backports PPA in a previous round of backports for Kubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark.

Today that has been updated to 0.7.2, and a build added for Kubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus users.

The PPA can be enabled by adding the following repository to your software sources list:


or if it is already added, the updates should become available via your preferred update method.

The PPA can be added manually in the Konsole terminal with the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports

and packages then updated with

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

Upgrade notes:

~ The Kubuntu backports PPA includes various other backported applications and Plasma releases, so please be aware that enabling the backports PPA for the first time and doing a full upgrade would result in a substantial amount of upgraded packages in addition to Latte Dock.

~ The PPA will also continue to receive further bugfix updates when they become available, and further updated releases of Plasma and applications where practical.

~ While we believe that these packages represent a beneficial and stable update, please bear in mind that they have not been tested as comprehensively as those in the main Ubuntu archive, and are supported only on a limited and informal basis. Should any issues occur, please provide feedback on our mailing list [1], IRC [2], and/or file a bug against our PPA packages [3].
