I use Neon on my Dell 7010 usff that I have attached to my tv.. Previously I had Feren OS with KDE anf it ran great, no issues with my tv. Neon though with 5.19.2 simply couldnt scale nor figure out the tv resolution and it was really messed up. Put Feren OS back in and not only did I get a wider variety of resolutions but scaling worked, really odd.

Should get to see it on Feren OS but it will take some time. They dont adopt the new versions right away.

Still waiting even though Feren updated a lot of things, some that were intended for the 20.04 based version.

Today Manjaro had updates to Plasma 5.19.4. There was a kernel update as well. 300MB of downloads. On average I think Manjaro replaces about 25% of the system every week, so you have an entirely new system every month. I am not sure what the updates specifically do. Just in my personal case it feels something of a waste that the system expends more resources updating itself than is expended getting productive work from the OS. Good news is the update did not seem to break anything and is running well.

Most of the updates are bug and security fixes but also newer versions of various software including KDE of course.

Feren OS KDE just updated to 5.19.4.
