KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS Desktop Environment Released with over 60 Improvements

KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS is now considered the latest stable and most advanced version of the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS (Long Term Support) desktop environment, which some of you out there are probably using on your favorite GNU/Linux distributions instead of a short-lived branch like KDE Plasma 5.9 or the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.10 release. KDE Plasma 5.8.7 LTS brings a dozen of improvements to components like Plasma Workspace and Plasma Desktop, both of which received the most attention in this update, but also to the KWin window manager, Bluedevil Bluetooth daemon, Breeze GTK theme, KScreenlocker screen locker, and Plasma Audio Volume Control applet.
