NEWS ABOUT SlackEX 15.0 stable Build 231201 with KDE Plasma 5.27.9 (latest) as DE
A new extra version of SlackEX is ready. It is based on Slackware 15.0 stable released 220203. In this version I’ve installed KDE Plasma 5.27.9 (latest version released 231024). Plasma 5.27 is a LTS (Long Term Support) version. Kernel 6.6.1-amd64-exton is used. The most important package installed is Refracta Snapshot. Study a LIST of all installed packages. With Refracta Snapshot you can build your own Slackware distribution with Plasma 5.27.9. KDE is one of Slackware’s official Desktop Environments. The other one is Xfce4.
