KDE Applications 16.08 Officially Released for the KDE Plasma 5.7 Desktop

KDE Applications 16.08 has been in development since July and had a Beta release pushed to public testers on July 21, followed by an RC (Release Candidate) build two weeks later, on August 4. This version replaces the now deprecated KDE Applications 16.04 series, which reached end of life with the KDE Applications 16.04.3 maintenance update. New features in KDE Applications 16.08 are the porting of the Cervisia version control system front-end, KDiskFree media information utility, and KolourPaint painting program to KDE Frameworks 5. Additionally, more work was done for the Kontact personal information manager and groupware software, and several packages are no longer supported.
