not yet..., it will be available on the wiki for the release day (likely will be for July 20)


QA with the above ISOs is going fine:
there are lot chances that these ISOs will become as the official ROSA Fresh R6 ;)

Who has ROSA R5 with all the official updates has the same stuff of the ROSA R6

I noted that on the 2014.1 repos several files of Plasma 5.3.2 are already available. Are they already usable? there's even a task-plasma5 metafile, but I don't know if plasma 5 is complete and how stable it is. Any news?

Yes, Plasma 5 is usable, not for daily use, or production PC; but already works enough...

Just a moment I can suggest you the ISO of R6 with Plasma 5 (unofficial)

searching... found.., , I've copied a sentence of Pulfer from ROSA Forum:
Pulfer wrote:Only unofficial Plasma 5 ISOs until Fall 2016 (when we switch from rosa2014.1 to rosa2016.1). Until that KDE 4 will be the main ROSA's DE.

Unofficial Plasma 5 ISOs can be downloaded from:
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/platforms/rosa ... oducts/137

Plasma 5 is not complete yet (no RocketBar port etc).

Thanks, I'll give it a try, at least in a virtual machine.

I tested plasma5 in a virtual machine. What to say: it looks really promising, but still rough: it's not fluid as current Rosa release. I did not upgrade the firmware, but my feeling is that it is the graphic part that needs optimizations: transitions are not smooth and the reactivity is not at its best.
Anyhow I believe that, once completed, it will be a huge step forward.

Indeed!

Plasma 5 is graphically nicer but is also heavier and slower than KDE 4...
- ROSA has decided to move officially to Plasma 5 only since end of 2016
- OMV should be equipped officially with Plasma 5 around the end of 2015,
hoping well... it's a bit risky!

The ISOs to be released have been reassembled to fix the adobe flash security issue

i586 > http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa/rosa2014. ... 6.i586.iso
x86_64> http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa/rosa2014. ... x86_64.iso

If everything will be OK with these, the "official announce" should follow for tomorrow...
