Kubuntu Developer Feedback

  • Plasma 5.7, we’re caught up in a dependency blocker as we need to get the latest QT 5.6.1 packaged. – Ask Aaron
  • Frameworks, Plasma and Apps all across to LaunchPad. This is a big improvement, it allows others to submit patches, and makes it much easier for to bring new packagers on board. ( We’ll be covering LP and GIt in a future )

Listener Feedback

From Jim:

Hi guys, it was very exciting to watch this podcast, you answered some questions I had myself wondering, like your opinion about kde-neon project. Some notes for the next podcast:

1) A chat room is needed, to be able to send you questions. Could it be possible to setup one that it is connected to the stream (more or less like twitch tv or youtube live style). Although I love the irc channel! 🙂

2) Talking about gaming is awesome. The reason is that target audience for Linux is a bit low at the moment (last I heard like 2% on Steam) but it can only grow, especially if the support for drivers, hardware and special effects gets better. Already some very awesome games are ported to Linux too and wine has very good support on many other.

3) Could we discuss about the needs for documentation, forum improvements and moderation, and how else the community could help and where that information could be shared so we get some startup hands-on, actively assisting?

4) Lastly does anyone have an idea of a DVD label/cover for Kubuntu 16.04? :)) I was trying to make one but why not have a contest for it?

Thanks for been awesome,

Cheers, Jim
