KaOS 2017.07 Linux Distro Brings Latest Calamares Installer, KDE Plasma 5.10.3

Every month, the KaOS devs push a new, up-to-date Live ISO image of their GNU/Linux distribution, which is built around the latest KDE and Qt technologies. And this time is no different, as KaOS 2017.07 incorporates the recently released KDE Plasma 5.10.3 desktop environment, KDE Applications 17.04.3 software suite, and KDE Frameworks 5.36.0, all built on the Qt 5.9.1 application framework. As expected, KaOS 2017.07 ships with the latest point release of the Calamares 3.1 universal installer framework, specifically version 3.1.1, which fixes a weaker password salt issue that was recently discovered and patched by the Calamares development team. All GNU/Linux distributions that use the Calamares installer as default graphical installer in their ISOs should follow suit as well.
