This has been a terrific week with lots of goodies, especially for fans of the KDE Plasma desktop environment. Apart from all the KDE goodies that landed this week, we also got a new Firefox release, a new major Mesa graphics stack release for gaming, and several new distro and software releases.

On top of that, I tell you about some of the upcoming features of Firefox 114 and QEMU 8.1, and invite you to try out Ubuntu on a new RISC-V board. Check out the hottest news of this week and access all the distro and package downloads in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for May 14th, 2023, below.

Website changes

Last week I told you that we partnered with TUXEDO Computers to sponsor our website. They now have a spot on the sidebar for as long as they want to sponsor 9to5Linux. For those of you who don’t want to see this, I have implemented a hide/show button that remembers your preference.
