KaOS Linux Switches to Falkon Browser, March’s Release Adds KDE Plasma 5.12 LTS

KaOS 2018.03 is now available for download and it’s the first to ship with the recently released KDE Plasma 5.12 LTS desktop environment by default. In fact, the new release includes KDE Plasma 5.12.2 LTS, along with the KDE Applications 17.12.2 and KDE Frameworks 5.43.0 software suites built on Qt 5.10.1. Another exciting aspect of the KaOS 2018.03 release is that it ships with the Falkon web browser by default instead of Qupzilla, which was used in previous releases of the GNU/Linux distribution and it’s no longer developed. In fact, Falkon is a continuation of Qupzilla, so you’ll have to manually migrate your profiles to Falkon.
