KaOS 2016.07 Adds KDE Plasma 5.7.2 and Linux Kernel 4.6, July’s Software Updates

KaOS 2016.07 is, as expected, a major update, but it’s here only for those who want to reinstall their KaOS installation for various reasons or deploy the operating system on new computers. Existing users who want to get all the goodies included in the KaOS 2016.07 ISO need only to run the “pacman -Syu” command from time to time. Among the updated core components and applications introduced in the KaOS 2016.07 ISO refresh, we can mention the latest KDE technologies, including the KDE Plasma 5.7.2 desktop environment, KDE Applications 16.04.3 software suite, and KDE Frameworks 5.24.0 collection of add-ons for the Qt 5.7 GUI toolkit.
