Netrunner Core 16.09 “Avalon” Is Based on Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie”, KDE Plasma 5.7

Based on the latest technologies and open source software packages from the Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” (Debian Stable) repositories, Netrunner Core 16.09 “Avalon” is here after being in development for the past year or so, and it gives users an early taste of what’s coming to the full-featured Netrunner Desktop version later this year. Shipping with the KDE Plasma 5.7.5, KDE Applications 16.04, KDE Frameworks 5.27.0, and Qt 5.7.0 technologies, Netrunner Core 16.09 “Avalon” introduces a new Applications Menu that’s similar to the one used by Google on its popular ChromeOS Linux-based operating system, making it easier for you to browse available apps.
