Just a short update from our labs:
We are working heavily on the next Netrunner release 13.12 based on Kubuntu 13.10, the current ISO is in an advanced Alpha stage, and will bring several new features and technologies, some being developed and prepared for the Plasma Next cycle. One of those bigger things is the new Menu called Kicker, the “little” cousin of Homerun.
For anyone interested to give it a try, you can add it right now to pretty much any debian based KDE distro from here:
When everything goes as planned, we will be able to announce the release of a public ISO for testing soon.
