The Kubuntu developers are pleased to announce the Breezy Release Candidate. Kubuntu is a user friendly operating system based on KDE, the K Desktop Environment. With a predictable 6 month release cycle part of the Ubuntu project, Kubuntu is the GNU/Linux distribution for everyone.
Adept Package Manager
This release features our new package manager, Adept, making searching for and installing packages a breeze. The Adept Updater keeps your system up to date with the latest changes and security fixes at the click of a button. Adept is the first package manager to make use of debtags, an advanced categorisation system for collections of packages, making it easy to find the packages you are interested in.
