Plasma Next Is Preparing to Replace KDE, First Beta Now Available for Download

The KDE Project developers have unveiled the first Beta of the next-generation Plasma workspace, bringing it a little closer to the final version.

Plasma Next has been built to eventually replace the current KDE Applications and Platform, which seems to have run its course. The project is still being maintained and new versions will still be released, but the new Plasma project is the future.
