"Today KDE releases a bugfix update to KDE Plasma 5, versioned 5.12.8. Plasma 5.12 was released in February 2018 with many feature refinements and new modules to complete the desktop experience. This release adds six months' worth of new translations and fixes from KDE's contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important," reads today's announcement.KDE Plasma 5.12.9 LTS coming September 10, 2019Being a long-term support (LTS) release, the KDE Plasma 5.12 desktop environment will receive similar maintenance updates every six months, until it reaches the end of life in July 2020. The next scheduled point release will be KDE Plasma 5.12.9 LTS, which is currently slated for release on September 10, 2019.

Until then, if you still use the KDE Plasma 5.12 LTS desktop environment on your GNU/Linux distribution, we recommend updating it to today's KDE Plasma 5.12.8 point release as soon as possible. Most distros will publish the new packages in their stable software repositories in the coming days or weeks.
