Posting back as Ive been using the new version and I can report its been great. Very up to date except for KDE as they are just a pinch behind with 5.20.4. Seems to be running a bit faster and no issues at all so far. Continues to be my favorite distro and my hope is it will gain a bit more acceptance over time.

They just updated from the 5.4 kernel to the 5.8 kernel but so far no sign of KDE 5.20.5.

Updated to KDE 5.21.2 along with a newer 5.8 kernel version. Theyve done a great job of keeping it up to date and I prefer it over Neon.

With the update the multiple desktop icons are now more easily accessed, the desktop has been refreshed to newer configuration which I like and the new KDE version has some nice new features Ill elaborate on more later. Really nice distro that would suit any KDE lover.

I really like the revised desktop as its cleaner, the multiple desktop icons are now accessible more easily and they cleaned up the various optional menus, that use to have some issues.Dark theme and really nice icons along with the many nice user features really make it easy for newbies as well.

Have they changed the colors any from that AWFUL color scheme they were using back in the beginning of 2020? Man, that was like the UGLIEST color scheme I've ever seen on a distro...

Yes its changed but they have such a large selection of colors/themes, you can do pretty much what you want. A lot has changed since they went to being Ubuntu based.
