    I downloaded and booted the latest live Argon iso earlier today. And it is already at Plasma 5.16. I presume that the latest Krypton is also at 5.16.

    My plan is to wait a few days. I expect that 5.16 will arrive in Tumbleweed very soon. But if you are impatient, you could add the additional repos used by Krypton. They are listed in this page:

    SDB:KDE repositories

    @nrickert,
    Thank's for replying, but will wait.


    It's out now in the stable channel, unstable one would not help at this point. Hoping for a new ISO then with KDE 5.16 in the box.

    Please be patient, KDE 5.16 is in openqa testing, as soon as it passes openqa it will be in the new snapshot, i.e. 20190612

    Dimstar announced 20190612 about 20 minutes before Knurpht's post, so it's on TW mirrors now.

    Default Re: How to get KDE 5.16 / Over-Saturated Servers

    The download rate for the latest stable Kernel (.rpm) in Yast is 30b/sec, average is 8.6Kb. They all seem to be over-saturated. Plus, dup is a no end loop.

    Download.opensuse.org's mirror redirection system currently broken. Select a specific working mirror in *.repo to work around. I've done multiple upgrades to 15.1 and TW from SE USA today with no delays using this method.

    Default Fresh Install: 20190606-20190612 / KDE 5.16

    I was not able to download the new ISO yesterday, the server was too slow, not to say dead. I guess updating the mirrors was taking all the bandwidth.


    Back to normal this morning on the main server(45 minutes):


    You have 2288 New Packages /run zypper dup manually

    Green all the way, but one bug or false reading of the Kernel. I knew I would have problems with the new MoK script. The process restarts in Mok, did not touch any keys and let it boot. Should have 5.7.1-1.1 or 5.7.1-1.2:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux linux-wpfz 5.1.7-1-default #1 SMP Tue Jun 4 07:56:54 UTC 2019 (55f2451) x86_64 x86
    _64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kde-agent
    polkit-kde-agent-5-lang-5.16.0-1.1.noarch
    polkit-kde-agent-5-5.16.0-1.1.x86_64
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
    kernel-source-5.1.7-1.2.noarch
    kernel-default-5.1.7-1.2.x86_64
    kernel-syms-5.1.7-1.2.x86_64
    kernel-syms-5.1.7-1.1.x86_64

    kernel-devel-5.1.7-1.2.noarch
    kernel-source-5.1.7-1.1.noarch
    kernel-devel-5.1.7-1.1.noarc
    Will kill this Kernel(s) now with the 1 click:
    The machine booted in MoK again, but this time click on the space bar and select continue to boot. This is how MoK works:


    Second bug, shouldn't see these Kernels:
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
    kernel-source-5.1.7-1.2.noarch
    kernel-firmware-20190607-264.1.noarch
    kernel-macros-5.2.rc4-2.1.gad82a9a.noarch
    kernel-default-devel-5.2.rc4-2.1.gad82a9a.x86_64
    patterns-devel-base-devel_kernel-20170319-8.4.x86_64
    kernel-syms-5.2.rc4-2.1.gad82a9a.x86_64
    kernel-default-5.2.rc4-2.1.gad82a9a.x86_64
    kernel-devel-5.1.7-1.2.noarch
    kernel-devel-5.2.rc4-2.1.gad82a9a.noarch
    Force deletion in Yast: 1.1 is gone, but 1.2 still there. Not shown in the Grub menu:


    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
    kernel-firmware-20190607-264.1.noarch

    xx@linux-wpfz:~> uname -r
    5.2.0-rc4-2.gad82a9a-default
    KDE 5.16 looks nicer, apart NUM Lock that was OFF and Notifications page that seems new, setup is the same.


    All the best,

    That's a misunderstanding, and the uname output is fine.

    With kernel 5.7.1-1.2, the last ".2" is a compile number. If the kernel is recompiled, it will be ".3" next time. But the actual kernel files will just show 5.7.1-1.

    In any case, Plasma 5.16 seems to be working fine here, though I have not had much time to test it.
