Update and Download

KDE Plasma 5.20.1 source code is already available and the compiled packages should be hitting the official repos soon. So if you are running the KDE Neon, wait for the notification in Discover for the update.

Kubuntu 20.10 which is due this week, will not have the KDE Plasma 5.20 as the default desktop environment. So once this first point release is out, you can install it via KDE backports PPA once available.
