Public bug reported:

SRU tracking bug for KDE's Plasma 5.12.7 LTS for bionic

Official release announcement by the KDE community:

Complete changelog (excludes translation updates):


 * Without this update, general users who are not inclined or able to
add our backports/update ppa will not receive this bugfix release of the
Plasma 5.12 LTS series

 * Providing this bugfix release via the official update pocket in the
archive will ensure that the bugfixes here reach and benefit most of our
users. This is particularly important for a Kubuntu and Plasma LTS

[Test Case]

 * General tests:
  - Does plasma desktop start as normal with no apparent regressions over 
  - General workflow - testers should carry out their normal tasks, using the 
plasma features they normally do, and test common subsystems such as audio, 
settings changes, compositing, desktop affects, suspend etc.

 * Specific tests:
  - Check the changelog:
  - Identify items with front/user facing changes capable of specific testing. 
e.g. "Fix scrollbars in LibreOffice."
   - Test the 'fixed' functionality.

[Regression Potential]

 * These updates fix some obvious front facing issues, but also include some 
underlying code fixes.
  - e.g. changes for compilation under Qt versions we do not ship yet, code 
optimizations and fixes with less obvious explanation of impact in the 

 * Fixes for obvious and testable bugs and regressions can also
introduce unintended other regressions in either the feature/app being
fixed, or desktop components or subsystems that interact with it. So it
is important in these updates to consider:

 * General testing - does the desktop as a whole, and routine use of
such work as previously with no obvious regressions over the previous

 * If there is say a fix for the audio applet to fix one issue, in
addition to fixing that issue, do the other common features of that app
still work as before, do the general audio settings still work?

[Other Info]

 * Packages not listed in the upstream changelog either have a 0-diff or just 
translation updates, Those with translation updates have been included in this 
 * However, we deliberately versioned depends and build depends, so that if 
accepting rebuilt small diff packages into the final release to the updates 
pocket is considered too much of a regression potential, or too difficult to 
validate, packages that have not introduced or require a dependency (internal 
or external) on 5.12.7 version, should be able to be abandoned from 
consideration and the SRU.
