Plasma-nm no longer replaces the knetworkmanager
Calibre is now fully operational
Gnome software should be working
kernel was updated with more fixes and one speedy improvement everyone could read about on phoronix (the radeon/nouveau timer improvements)
for virtualization needs the xen and libvirt were updated

akonadi should better handle the postgres as its backend
