openSUSE Tumbleweed Users Get Latest KDE Goodies, Linux Kernel 4.7 Coming Soon

Last week, openSUSE Tumbleweed finally received the brand new KDE Plasma 5.7 desktop environment, along with the third and last maintenance update of the KDE Applications 16.04 software suite, and the KDE Frameworks 5.24.0 collection of add-ons for the Qt 5.7 GUI toolkit. Users also received the Linux 4.6.4 kernel, though openSUSE devs promised to bring the new Linux kernel 4.7 announced by Linus Torvalds on July 24, 2016, in one of the upcoming snapshots for Tumbleweed. However, that didn’t happen just yet because the kernel requires more testing.
