Release party time!

KDE Plasma 5.1

Plasma 5.1 was released yesterday and it is looking real good. I have been running the 'next generation' Linux desktop on my laptop, courtesy of openSUSE packages made out of regular git snapshots. It was surprisingly stable so I have little worries about the stability of the final 5.1 release and I recommend to check it out ;-)

Of course, we should have a Plasma release party! We haven't had release parties in our place for a while (can't believe that the last one is over 2 years ago...), so it's time to do that again.

Check the release party page for details. The short of it:
  • October 18, 19:00-22:00 or so
  • EldenaerStrasse 28a, Berlin, Germany
  • Bring Your Own Devices Drinks (there's a Sp├Ątie (24h convenience store) downstairs). Food is welcome, too.
  • Don't forget to bring your good mood and friends

Further notes:
  • I might do some demoing of what is new in Plasma 5.1, depending on interest.
  • Anybody is welcome, as always, irrespective of color, sex, occupation, shape - heck, even species - you're all super welcome! That means you have to play nice with each other, do I have to say that?
  • If you're afraid of dogs, Popcorn will teach you that you don't have to be. But really, if she freaks you out, we can put her in another room, don't say home out of fear for the hairy monster!
  • Let me know if you're coming - so we have some idea of how crowded our apartment will be!


For the geekos among you: 13.2 is coming SOON and boy, is it chock-full of awesomeness! I'm talking to the Berlin LUG, we will probably do a release party. If possible we'll do it on November 8, so keep that date free for now!
