for our KDE-Lovers we have updated **KDE Apps** to **[v17.04.2]**, **Plasma** to [**v5.10.2**] and **Frameworks** to [**v5.35**]. Also **QT** got updated to **v5.9**, which resulted in a [**rebuild**] of other packages.
We are also happy to present the latest Mozilla software to you. **Firefox** is now at **[v54.0]**. Thunderbird on the other hand is now at **[v52.2]**.
Also this update brings a huge [**rebuild of perl**] packages. Please check if you have installed some packages from the AUR which depending on an older release of **perl** and remove them before updating.
Other things to mention with this update-pack:
* We finally found some way to fix the **Calamares** [crashes on some partition types]. Thx flies also out to Andrius and Adriaan from KDE for fixing this long lasted bug. You may review the [changelog].
* Fabian filled the upstream bug for **Octopi** crashing with **QT 5.9**, as we thought. In the end it was no theme issue at all, rather some compiler oops with **gcc7** and the **alpm-backend** after Marcus gave us the clue where to look. Solution was to use **clang** as compiler to get all going.
* Philip released again Greg's kernels as usual. This time almost all **extramodules** needed to be compiled due abi-changes.
* The [**glibc/mkinitcpio-busybox**-issue] should be fixed now on **i686**. Please report if otherwise.
* Last but not least Frede finally released **pacman-mirrors [v4.2]**.
As usual you find the regular upstream packages, such as **eric**, **haskell** and **python**. Please give us feedback and report any issues you may see with this update.
