We are proud to announce the official release of Netrunner 15 – Prometheus (64bit).

Netrunner 15 is revised from the ground up: For the first time, it officially ships the new KDE Plasma Desktop 5.2.
Therefore, an upgrade from previous Netrunner series with KDE4.x is neither officially available nor really recommended.
This release is 64-bit only.
(Note that KDE4.x based Frontier 14 will be available and supported until 2016 for 32bit and 64bit).
 
Catching Fire!
 
Being named after the “God of Fire“, Netrunner 15 is coming straight from the roaster!
We took many extra steps to make sure Prometheus feels as comfortable and enjoyable as you would expect from using a previously released Netrunner version.
There are certainly some hot corners left here and there, so be prepare to get some burning while warming your heart :)
If you spot any of those corners, please report them over at github, so we can fix them.

 

 

This release features the brand new KDE Plasma Desktop 5.2, packed together with the freshly released KDE Frameworks 5.7 and Qt5.4.

 
It takes the classic Oxygen themeing and adds a little Breeze into a mix of tradition and modern looks.
 
All previous Settings and Add-Ons have been restored to work in this new environment.
 
 
 
A New Mix

With Netrunner 15 we took the chance to ship a revised set of applications: Most of them are updated to their latest versions and some new thrown in for the fun of trying out something different.
 
Sddm is now the default login manager.
 
Thunderbird-Plasma has been added together with Firefox-Plasma:
 
Going ahead, we split radio, music librarian and online searching of music into three dedicated applications:
 
Gmusicbrowser is for your local music with an excellent indexing and search mechanism even with large collections
 
Atraci covers online music search
 
Radiotray is for minimal and unobstrusive radio listening
 
For screencasts we included SimpleScreenRecording and Handbrake to help you convert videos to any output format.
 
Disks is added as a great utility that allows formating or burning ISOs onto any connected device like usb sticks.
 
Most well-known applications from previous releases have been updated to their latest versions, like Skype 4.3, LibreOffice 4.4 and VLC media player.
 
Changes in an overview (excerpt):
 
Kernel 3.16.0.30~40
KDE Plasma 5.2
KDE Frameworks 5.7
Qt5.4
Firefox 35.0.1
Thunderbird 31.4.0
VLC 2.2.0
LibreOffice 4.4
Krita & Karbon 2.8.5
Gimp 2.8.10
Pidgin 2.10.9
and much more…

64bit only - for the moment, but test out and report back here. I read Cognizione's news about Linux Developers wanted and that reminded to check NetRunner's website again.

Thanks Dahaka. I think I'll wait this one out. The reports aren't favorable yet. Looks like switch to KDE 5 needs the wrinkles sorted out.
